Subject: RE: My goal of sub 4:00 1500-I will not stop until I reach my goal.
Advice noted. I know it's usually 20-25% of weekly mileage but I felt like I was missing the benefits of the long run, hadn't done much over 70 minutes. So I guess incorporating the 2 hour run back into the schedule means my other runs during the week should be more, but I'm hesitating to bump too much right now. I'm still running only 5 days, I doubled (4/4) one day to get my 6th run in. All this asphalt running makes me wary of increases as it seems you understand. Luckily, 1.5 hour commute to work is over as of Thursday and I am going to school at home so possibly some more time to run in the park and get on the softer surfaces though our trails are not very well kept to allow for your natural stride.
As I've run most days based on feel and just fit in the track workouts where I felt OK and not back to back, I'm structuring the mileage bump kind of loosely as well to avoid injury. I'm just listing the run choices for the week that make up 40 and then running them whenever I feel up to it. So Sunday is slotted for the long run, but today doesn't HAVE to be the 6 mile recovery, it could be a day off or a 7 mile easy tempo depending on how I feel.
Thinking of skipping the 5x1K workout and substituting a 3 mile tempo on the track aiming for even splits at a 6:30-6:45 pace. That in 20:54 5-6 weeks ago still lingers in my head as one of my favorite runs of this comeback so it's tempting.
