"I've been following Eddy's improvement over the last two years on this site, and it's been pretty dang solid. Sure the weekly mileage has been up and down, but over the long haul he's getting out the door and has turned himself into quite a runner. He's only now just figuring out his potential. Consistency in running is measured in years, not weeks. And over the last couple of years, Eddy's made great strides" Jeff 14 Jan 2009
SORRY FOR MY NAIEVETE, BUT WHAT EXACTLY IS LOAD?
ALL I DO IS RUN AT MY MAF AND NOTE ALL MY MILE TIMES, HOW COULD I USE THIS?
jimmyb load sheet. It worked the 1st time. Now it does not.
I just posted a 26-week spreadsheet to keep track of training loads. I found the other one to be too broad. I find there is a difference between training at MAF, and MAF -15.
Just enter your current MAF where it says "Enter MAF" and you'll see all the zones change. Enter the amount of minutes for each zone.
Hopefully this will be useful for someone. If you find yourself on the injured side of things, most likely you can track it to a monotonous, or sharp increase in, training load.

Let me know what you think about it.
Run until the trail runs out.
The pain that hurts the worse is the imagined pain. One of the most difficult arts of racing is learning to ignore the imagined pain and just live with the present pain (which is always bearable.) - Jeff
