half marathon training program. Is this legit. Only 3 days a week? (Read 2468 times)

    I'm 65 and have felt the best overall whenever I run 6-7 days a week.  Sure, it's mostly slow pace with a couple of short two or three milers thrown in (those are definitely recovery runs for me), and I'm currently working my way back to that level.

     

    BTW, did Jeff H. happen to mention in his profile that he wanted to sell a lot of books?  Smile

        And if I could run fast, I would. It's a wonder those slow miles haven't permanently sidelined me!  But he's right of course - I sure can't get to a million miles a week at my pace!   Joking

        TRASH THE JUNK MILES

         

        Running a million miles a week is old school. Those endless miles of dull, slow slogs take a steep toll in time, injuries, and motivation.
