On Track

Well, as much as we can be. We are getting closer and closer to Dopey in January, and I’m proud to say that other than missing a long run for my birthday the other week, we’ve been nailing our runs. Either four or five days a week, getting some miles in. Sure, our long runs aren’t quite up to par (we are WAY behind on that), but at least we’re getting there.

Since we can’t catch up to the plan at this point, it was time to start developing a new one to get us as close as possible. The next three mini Dopey’s are 4/8/18, 4/9/19 and 2.5/5/10/20. Our longest run to date has only been 11, so that’s not gonna happen. Instead, here’s what we’re going to do:

    The Plan

  • This week: 3/6/14
  • Two weeks: 4/8/16
  • Peak week: 2.5/5/10/18

It’s aggressive still, but it’s the best we’ll be able to do given our current fitness levels. I think a good portion of the longer segments will need to be run/walk as well, so we will train for that.

But otherwise, we’re doing ok. We did our three miles on Thursday and six miles this morning, so tomorrow will be 14. Longest I’ll have run since Louisville, and after two days of running, so it’ll be interesting to see how our legs are feeling during and after the run. Going to be an early bedtime I think!
