Initial Marathon Planning

Feels like summer is here, the temperature is up requiring running with singlets and keeping hydrated. Today’s run was very casual on partially shaded streets. The time has come to start addressing a running plan. Mike sent and has some excellent resources on Lydiard training that I am reading. My friend Russ says he has a Lydiard book that he picked up back in the 1980’s. I read last year’s New England Runner of the Year, Nate Jenkins based some of his training on what was called Lydiardesque, he went on to qualify for the Olympic trials. It looks like I will start with timed runs for this week and see where the mileage lands.

Training: AM – Powers Road Out n Back 7M, 55:32, 7:59 Pace, 135 HR, sunny, warm, humid, feel a slight sensation on the right shin, ran one half with stroller.
