I decided instead of running the OD 10 miler to switch to a half marathon on the same day because I'm doing Broad Street (10 miles) and I want to get in a half distance before the fall. My goal for the fall is sub 1:45 so I want to see where I'm at in my comeback this spring. This is in about 8 weeks. I've been running without a plan:
Tuesday is a hill workout (which will become track in March)
Thursday is a longer tempo run
Saturday is a long run.
I've been building up my mileage and last week I hit 27. I am going to get back to 30 for this week and probably continue to hit 30 or above for the next 8 weeks. I've never really run more than 30 to 35 miles a week (even in marathon training) and don't want to burn out, but want to rock this half and Broad Street. I'm not sure what my best course of action is as far as training for a PR. Do you have any tips on my weekly mileage?
I am thinking in the back of my head that if I start having a good spring, I am going to want the opportunity to run a marathon. I will decide by the beginning of April probably and if I am up for it, maybe train for a mid May one? I have checked around to get an idea what is out there. I will probably wait until the fall, but it's in the back of my head for sure!
I feel like my supply is better. I bought liquid fenugreek and put a dropper of that in water (when I remember) and that has helped and going back and still feeding Kara before bedtime (and then pumping before bed too). Who knows what is up with that but I think if I can make it to 9 months, I'll have enough pumped supply to make it to the year. That's my goal without dealing with too much stress to get there.
