to go backwards in mileage for week to begin training plan for marathon? I'm training for May 3rd marathon...know I'll be doing less mileage, however am adding in the longer run and hills/speedwork. But I can't help but think I'm going backwards??? So frustrating! I've looked at so many plans, tried to come up with something somewhat of my own...just not happy this time around. Maybe its because this time I have a time goal in mind. ???
Needs more cowbell!
• Do some dus...and some CX...and some tandem gravel...and some podiums...
• 130#s (or less)
• Stop letting my core go to hell
keep your mileage.
add the parts of the plan that extend.
do the long runs.
taper a bit less than most plans recommend.
