That's a wise approach. And at my age, just "maintaining" is actually "improving" ha! Still, I'd like to TT a sub-6 mile one more time before giving up the ghost. Hard to wrap my brain around the fact that that's truly a long-shot. Geez.
The 3-day, 4-day plan is a good idea. Best wishes with your running. I surely hope normal races come back. Dunno about you, but training for "fitness only" doesn't offer nearly as much incentive.
Oh yeah, not planning on giving up the ghost here at all, just playing the long game a little and looking toward the spring. Planning to step things up a little more then, but I've always enjoyed running for the sake of running so I'm fine doing that for the time being.
You may well be closer to a sub-6 mile than I am at the moment. (Your basic speed has been quite a bit better than mine in the recent past.)
