One Up, One Down

Time to start training again! After three months of running whatever I felt, I'm back on a schedule as of today. But it's a slacker-friendly schedule. Five runs per week, with most of the mileage happening on the back-to-back long runs on the weekend. This means the weeknight runs are short (nice during the winter!). It's also one-up-one-down, meaning that every other week is a cut-back week. This allows for a long, gradual build, and I've found in the past that that pattern works well for me. I am looking forward to this!

I love that I'm not starting from zero this time, and I am excited to see what improvements I can make in 2011.

This week's plan:
Monday - 4 miles
Tuesday - 6 miles
Wednesday - 4 miles
Friday - 16 miles
Saturday - 8 miles


  1. I like the idea of one up, one down. Makes a lot of sense, especially for injury avoidance.

    You are an inspiration! Good luck with your training this season!

  2. That sounds great!

    Good luck on your plans...

  3. Thanks! I am feeling really great this week so it's a good time to get back on track. :)
