Looking back – getting ready for Little Rock

by on Feb.15, 2010, under Other, Races

Thought I’d look back at my training for the first 3 months of my 4 months leading up to the Little Rock Marathon.  I’m feeling marathon ready but definitely not peaking.  2 16 mile runs this year and 1 23 mile run.  A couple of very light weeks while I was on the road.  It’s 67  hours and 445 miles of running through last Saturday averaging 30 miles / week.  There are two marathons in there.  I’ve got one more hard week of training this week, hopefully to be capped by a half marathon race this weekend if I can work out the details, and then taper time.  It’s time to start getting ready, start building my race day plan on how I’m going to conserve and set the tone in the early miles, attack the hills and sustain my run in the late miles.

    Go Pete! Looks like you have put in the training. Map out the elevations and then determine your pace for each mile depending on those elevations. Then stick with your plan.

    Best,
    Dan
