Sketch

 This is a partial roughed out 24 week run schedule for my 2016. I will be biking, lifting and swimming too but I will place the focus on running until the weather gets better.


 I will always be far more fluid with a schedule because you/ we can't predict how a single one of those days will go or how we'll feel, this just allows for a big picture view. I base every schedule on life's schedule first and then plug in the training around that. Tuesday and Friday are my more open days so I put my key sessions there, plus that allows 2 days of recovery/ easy after Tuesday's harder run. I know that I have a ~48 hour lag in fatigue, meaning I generally feel good the day after a hard run, like crap 2 days after, and good on the 3rd day. An example of how I'll be fluid here is that if I feel good on Wednesday I won't be afraid to trade with Friday. And if I feel like crap on Friday then I know I can bump the hard run to Saturday and still feel OK for Sunday's longer run.
 All of this is assuming that I don't have my somewhat typical bi-polar episodes and I retire again. That's a real possibility. I'm hoping that sketching this out and getting into a regular routine again will help me stick with it. And if it does then I'll race this year. We'll see.

So the question remains, what is in April that is 24 weeks out? Hmmm.

Lucho said...

That schedule doesn't say when the 24 weeks starts :) I'll keep the race to myself until I know I can stick with the training.

Shad I was already eyeballing the calendar to try to determine the same.

I love all the time off after week 12 though.

This is gonna be the best Warrior Dash Color Run ever.

Lucho said...

Ha! I figured I'd leave the last 11 weeks blank for now so I didn't reveal what my focus would be. Outlining the specific work would give it away.

I was thinking the same thing, go pull a Max King.

Lucho said...

In order for me to "pull a Max King" I'd have to magically become a freaking bad-ass with super powers.

Very cool to see the training coming back, I'm sure a few people will be in suspense waiting to see if/what you race...me included :)
