Final Tune-Up Before Pocono Marathon

I was out of the house by 5:30 this morning and it was COLD! I knew it was supposed to get cold last night, but I wasn’t expecting to feel as cold as it did. Thankfully I was wearing gloves and a running jacket, but I found myself wishing I had actually worn a winter hat!

Details: (Valley Centre 715 meter loop/Hill Behind Sam’s Club)  15 minute easy warm-up….6 x :12 hill sprints with 2:00 recovery jog…2 laps of Valley Centre in 2:18/2:17 (5:10–:08/mile)…6 x :12 hill sprints with 2:00 recovery jog…2 laps of Valley Centre in 2:19/2:14 (5:12–:01/mile)…10 minute cool-down.

Schedule up until Sunday (Pocono Marathon):

Later today: short weight session then 20-30 minutes easy

Wednesday: 40 minutes/40 minutes

Thursday: 40 minutes with 4 x :15 striders

Friday: 40 minutes with 4 x :15 striders

Saturday: 30 minutes with 4 x :15 striders

Looking forward to seeing what I can do this weekend.

Also…I know I posted this yesterday, but thanks to the Keystone Track Club for continuing to support me, but more importantly I wanted to thank my wife (Amanda) for being so supportive of my running.
