Palm Springs Half Marathon, February 8
I bet you could break 2:00 in a race situation right now, with a good taper. You do quite a bit of running.
When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?
Marathon Maniac #6740
Goals for 2014:
Run multiple marathons
Run an ultramarathon (Crown King Scramble in April)
Hawt and sexy
I'm touching your pants.
Why all the speedwork now if the peak race is in May? Are we skipping the base phase or is there another race soon to peak for? Look up interval and what it is used for, then you will understand what i am saying here.
I ran 1:46x in 80 degrees temps. I did this while only 4 weeks into my peak phase in prep for a marathon. I would drop all speedwork right now and start peaking 8 weeks out from my race. Then you could probably get a huge PR. If you keep the speedwork all the way through though, I would hazard a guess that you would PR but the overall gain would be smaller.
Those who try, fail! Those who do what it takes to succeed, succeed!!
