if you want to run a 1:43 do something like this:

M: rest because tired
T: 5-7 miler easy af
W: rest because reasons
R: 5-7 miler easy af
F: who am I kidding, you'll probably skip the speed/tempo workout that would be pencilled in here
Sa: Also skip
Su: Long slow run, maybe 10-14 miles. Maybe with hills.

result: 20-25 easy mpw. Also be old af


I created a 40-45 mpw plan for myself for the 2nd half of the year that I probably wont follow but it looks like this:

M: swim + 5 easy recovery
T: 5 easy
W: 7 total w/40 minute tempo [eg hard af], and a swim where I probably drown because tired af from the tempo run. For the record my tempo pace will start at 7:40 [coincidentally lines up with goal MP, but I expect this to drop this isnt intended to be a MP workout]
R: 5 easy
F: 5 easy
Sa: rest
Su: 10-16 LSR

=40-45 mpw, 2 swims, and little to no biking. maybe 1 or 2 bike commutes tops in there [eg 20-40 mpw]

I'm hoping [but have no idea] if 6-12 months at the above level would sneak me into 1:37 half /3:22 marathon range eg sneak into a BQ by the skin of my teeth

I gotta be honest when I ran 1:43 last weekend I was kinda dissapointed that I couldnt handle 1:41 [my BQ pace] yet, so I have a super long way to go still obviously

Stickaz, you are by far the most useful poster


I think I'll take teh Hal Higdon intermediate 2

It will be a bit of a challenge to fit in the quality runs.
my running these days mostly consists of
1 long ish run every other week
run commuting
stroller pushing

I'm loosely patterning myself after the pfitz 18/55 with all the hard stuff nixxed out. Daniels is also a solid. Might consider one of the programs for tri people since you tend to actually kinda focus on biking it seems

lots of references to Hanson's being superior to Pfitz, tho. Hansons has way more work at MP
