… but I would like some runner opinions!
I have 3 weekends left, and the 4th is the L.A. Rock and Roll Half marathon. Woooo! My training plan has sort of been ad hoc lately due traveling and life in general. This isn’t ideal, but it is how it has been. FYI, during the week, I’m trying to do a 5 mile base, 3 mile base, a day of speed work (this has been spotty), and a day of yoga. Plus a quick strength routine two days.
What would you recommend doing for the long runs? At minimum, I want to have a 10 miler under my belt before the 13.2. I’m thinking 11 might be better. I ran 9 last weekend, no real issues. So I’m thinking…
This weekend: 10 miles
Next weekend: 11 miles
Third weekend: 8/9 miles
Fourth weekend: RACE Day!
Or do you not taper long runs? I know training plans aren’t an exact science, I’m just looking for your opinions!
