I’m trying out a new series called Training Tuesday to keep you informed on my 2015 NYC marathon training and to keep me accountable.
Maybe you remember me posting my training plan for the NYC marathon a month ago. Well just forget it, that plan has gone a bit to crap. I was a bit overzealous with my planning. I realized I’m much better at running longer distance less frequently during the week versus lots of shorter runs. Not to mention I need time in my life for other activities outside of just working and running.
Here is my new updated plan. Note that I’ve added a new race – Grete’s Great Gallop and removed some runs and added some more cross-training. I realized I really need to do more strength and cross-training. Also I’ll be going to as many of my Athletes to End Alzheimer’s (ATEA) practices as possible versus training on my own like I had originally planned on.
What’s your favorite cross-training activity?
Do you prefer running shorter distances more frequently or longer distances a few times per week?
How well do you stick to your training plans?
