Bob left a comment last week asking if I was still around and reminding me that I had not posted anything for a while.
I am still here and still training. In fact, I’m still on target for the St. Jude Marathon in Memphis in December.
I have been training using a custom schedule that I build based on the RRCA Coaching Certification I got this summer.
The plan has a heavy emphasis on building endurance with slow mileage. I have two more weeks in the “sharping” phase that includes speed work. So for October, I logged 236 miles. I have put in five 20-plus mile runs and have two more to go.
