And Now the Slow March of Doom

After five days off from the race, I concluded the month with a six-miler at 9:13 pace. May is done. Here is the statistical rundown:
  • Total Miles: 81 miles (16 runs)
  • Highest Weekly: 28 miles
  • Average Weekly: 13.4 miles
  • Average Pace: 9:19 per mile
  • Longest/Fastest Run: 9 miles, 8:52 pace
  • The Monthly Dif: +22 miles (59 miles in April)
Today marks my official start of marathon training. However, I am still constructing a training plan that will get me ready for a sub-four-hour effort at Akron and my ancillary 2009 race goals. For now, I will rehash my 5-K training. One change: I will mix in more 400-meter intervals during track sessions.

That's all you get today. Don't cry about it.

My eyes are dry, suprisingly. Good luck on your training!

Sounds like someone has a case of the Mondays... or is still a little upset about the Cavs loss over the weekend.

Man, you set the bar high for June's mileage, didn't you?

Lovely 400 meter intervals...that should be fun.

Not a bad way to start marathon training! And I'm pretty sure your recent 5k time predicts a marathon well under 4 hours on all those, erm, highly accurate calculators.

I agree with BrianFlash, more 400m is never fun! that said, I think you will have some revenge and score your sub 4 hour marathon! now don't go proving me wrong like the Caves did...

I can cry about it if I want to...that said...I don't really want. But still.

Good luck with the extra 400s. Sounds super un-fun.
