Thank you Nobby. I believe this is something that I have been overlooking. I know it sounds insane, but I've been following a canned training program and just trying to listen to my body when it says, "no more" or "HTFU." I see the problem with that now. I think it is time to put more effort into my training plans.
Okay, I have a follow up questions. In looking at a "what you need" training plan, if I look only at my last race performance, I'm not sure that I would cover "what I need" to get faster. I ran a very conservative 1/2 last August due to weather conditions. What emphasis or what percentage of your "what do you need" training plan is based on last race performance and what percentage is based on your training log?
Prince of Fatness
I don't particularly like the way RA's "workouts" chart shows because it does NOT show "no-run" days which, as far as I'm concerned, is quite important.
Running is stupid
I thought you freaks called it the kairos.
The Logic of Long Distance
IT takes both chronos and kairos, an aporetic intersection of careful control and sponteneity. The controlled, analytic and relentless chronological development of training carefully and cautiously builds the possibility of the kairological encounter: the lightning strike, the race magic, power beyond the possibility of analytic control.
Nobby ..... Instead of the Workout view you can use the Calendar view (It's directly above the Workout link on the left). You can mouse over the workouts to get more details (such as pace), or click on them to get all of the workout details.
Hope that helps.

Here's one about the meaning of it all. (Thanks to Purdey).
• Do some dus...and some CX...and some tandem gravel...and some podiums...
• 130#s (or less)
• Stop letting my core go to hell
And thanks to you for posting it here...I'd never read that. Wow, beautiful.
