Okay so word did not copy into the post real well. So I turned it into a pdf then converted to jpg. I make no promises on clarity! (If you click on each individual month a better more visible image will come up)
My major race line up puts me with some overlapping training schedules. For now I just have marathon training posted at the bottom of each date and tri training at the top. I will have to modify here and there a bit. But most of the training fits pretty well.
I am using a modified Hal Higdon program for Boston, Coach Kurts Wildflower program for Steelhead, and the First program (3 runs a week, but all faster paced) for Chicago Marathon.
The Hal Higdon program calls for 6 days a week of running. My body is just not made for that as I found out the hard way last year. Walking home in an ice storm because your ITB gives out is NO fun! So I am cutting the two easy days a week and swapping for cross training or rest depending on my mood. I left the original program up on those days in gray as another option if I am feeling up to it.
I just have the base phase up for Steelhead right now. I will be talking with CK to get the rest of my program in line but I will have a 5 week aerobic economy phase, 2 weeks of build intervals, and 1 week taper.
Bad part about setting up your race plan is you have to choose all your little races and you realize that some of the ones you really want to do fall on the same weekend. Blah. What is it about athletes and wanting to do the same small races every year?
