Yep. Its been what, seven weeks? I have rested fully. No push ups or squats or walking or jogging. Just a nice little clean, unadulterated hiatus. Just eating and resting and now I am fully healed.
So I have prepared a plan and I am working it from next week. These are the Key points about my plan:
End Objective: Run a Sub 90mins Half Marathon
Training Goals: Manage 70Kms a Week by August 2009.
Increase mitochondria and capillary density in the running muscles because the more mitochondria, the less lactate at every running pace. Avoid Injuries. Gradual increase and Periodicity. Run 5 X a week. Sub 20mins 5K and Sub 41Mins 10K
Training Phases: Base Mileage Phase, Speed Phase
Training Period: May 18th 2009 - Oct 25 2009.
The mistake we were making earlier, going by Hadd's approach to marathon training, is that we were running very low mileage and running them too fast. I want to evolve and change my physiology via this training plan.
Wish me Luck!
