On May 6, I will be running my 6th marathon since October 2011. I participated at this event since 2010 and for being registered this year, I am now a member of the legacy club.
I did well in my previous half marathons at this event and hopefully, I can finish strong come May 6.
The Journey had taken toll on my knees and calves. It's been a struggle finishing each stage of the journey. Instead of getting stronger as the Journey progresses, I been saddled with injuries that requires REST.
To increase/sweetened my chances of finishing My Journey, I devised a training program.
1. 1 mile run: 1 minute walk intervals at a 5+ hrs finish pace(approx . 11 minutes/mile).
2. 2 miles run: 1 minute walk intervals for the 1st 10 miles
1 mile run: 1 minute walk intervals for the 2nd 10 miles.
1 mile run: 2 minutes walk intervals from mile 20 to the finish line.
Last Monday, I did the 2m/1m/10m at 10:30 pace. Next LSD will be a 16 miler.
