Training for the Elderly
I think it is official that I am the oldest mommy here. I am here to post my training plan for Boston. It is the less is more marathon plan (Actually it is called "16-week FIRST training plan. I read about it in runners world and found it on their website. In a nutshell it is running three days a week and cross training another two. The article talks about how the cross training improve maximal oxygen uptake and lactate threshold. I am choosing this plan because I seem to be injury prone. I didn't actually follow it for St. George but I did cross train to get ready for St. George. I plan to follow this plan with the speed work and tempo runs and hope to do well in Boston.
