This morning my workout was a 10 mile run (six miles of which was a hilly fartlek run surging up the rolling hills) than I lifted some weight at the gym. My lifts were 5 sets x 5 reps of parallel squats. Than I did some paused front squats for 5 sets x 3 reps. Than I did some pull ups and dips. Than I ran back home which was about a mile. This evening I plan to do another 8-12 miles.
Current training goal:
I'm going do some cross country races. And, some half marathons this fall.
Right now I'm just focusing on building up some pure strength to build me up to hit some serious mileage this winter.
Last winter I did 8 straight weeks of 100+ miles. This winter I plan on doing a winter base phase of 12-16 week base phase of 140+ miles a week. I'll start my base phase in October/November through February. I plan on making a marathon debut next spring. I hope to run the olympic b standard.
