We are mid flight on our way to Miami for the marathon. My training has not been traditional, I didn’t put in the traditional long distance runs, no 20 or 18 milers. But I did put in a few 30+ mi run weeks, had some hard tempo efforts, and I got in some good bike sessions.
I felt like the bike really strengthened my legs to handle some of those tempo runs. It also helped get my cardio back after the winter break. Most rides were steady efforts over 2.5 hours.
My plan for the marathon is to stick to a 8:15min/mi pace group, keep a steady pace, and recovery quickly. There is a tri season coming!
Back to the flight, listening to some Sasha – Involver 🙂
