I've trained (using that term loosely) for 10 half marathons and 1 full marathon and haven't died trying yet or even hit any significant walls so I figure my general running plan or just getting out there at least 3 days a week works pretty well for me. BUT, I have never run this kind of mileage before so I'm going to set weekly plans for myself to get me to July 19-20.
I also can't forget I'm running the See Jane Run half marathon the week before Ragnar on July 14. I'm excited to be one of their newest ambassadors so I want to do them proud by giving it my all. I don't think there is going to be a PR attempt but I still want to run my best before giving myself a short break before Ragnar.
So...I'm just going to take this training on a weekly basis depending on my schedule for each week. I plan on getting up to a 16 mile long run and incorporating some twice a day runs to prep.
Let the countdown begin...
9 WEEKS TILL SEE JANE RUN HALF
10 WEEKS TILL RAGNAR ULTRA
Here is what is on tap for this week - May 13-19
I already went to Barre class so I'm 1 for 1 for the week so far...yahoo!
This post is pretty boring picture wise so please enjoy a picture of Stacey before she got out of bed this morning, I can't stand the cuteness and especially when she lays with all her paws in a pile like that :).
QUESTION: Any suggestions for Ragnar Ultra training? Should I run longer than 16 miles at one time? My longest run during Ragnar is 12.3 miles with a total mileage of 34.4.
