Chickamauga Battlefield Marathon. I've kept it easy and let my body dictate the pace of my work outs. After running two marathons in 3 weeks, it took about 15 days post race until I felt like pushing hard in workouts, and since then I've kept a regular schedule of 3-5 milers during the week and 6-8 milers on the weekend. Also, I have focused on doing more strength training. Recently, I did start training for the Krispy Kreme Donut Dare, but I'm not sure that plan has a lot of crossover with Marathon training.
Short and sweet?I've been using last week and this week to start ramping the miles back up and see how my body responds. So far, so good. I've decided to adapt the marathon training program I used for Chickamauga. Though I typically like to go into a training cycle with specific goals, I'm also waiting to see how my training goes for the next few weeks to develop my race goals. For certain I know my goals will be to have fun, finish, and probably not win the race. Especially not since this awesome lady (and fellow Mainer) is running Donna again!
Anyone have any experience with shortened marathon training programs?
How did it workout?
