Half Marathon Trainers


Training Question (Read 207 times)

One day at a time

    I'm trying to figure out what I should do for running this coming week. I've had 4 good weeks, and I think I'm supposed to go lighter this week. Another factor to consider is that we're going to be downhill skiing in Vermont the second half of the week. I haven't skied in two years, so it will be challenging! I figure I will ski two days. My miles the last four weeks: 19.5, 20.8, 22.0, 23.6. My runs this week: 3.1, 5.1, 5.1, 3.2, and 7.1. So if I ski two days, what do you think I should do for runs? Thanks for your help! I'm trying to catch up to the 1000-mile bunny, but I don't want to overdo it, either, and get hurt. Teresa
      I would think skiing would be good cross training for the quads, and strengthen your ankles, but don't get hurt and mess up your training schedule. I would cut out a couple of runs for the skiing.

      PBs since age 60:  5k- 24:36, 10k - 47:17. Half Marathon- 1:42:41.

                                          10 miles (unofficial) 1:16:44.

        Skip the running and go have a good time skiing. Missing a couple of days running won't have much effect over the long term.
