5:45 AM: 3.1-mile run.  With some run drillings to start it out as I waited from my GPS watch to locate satellites.  

Well,  October was my month off.  I did do a Race the 5th of October and a fun run the 26th of October, but I took two weeks of the month completely off without a single work out and the other two weeks only had three workouts for a total of 2-3 hours training.   So this was Day-1. 

I had a great pre-season plan for the next 12 weeks, but last week had second thoughts after reading a blog by my BT mentor about the offseason.  It said to build volume and not do any intense work as you start your season.  Two of my last three years I have done a lot of speed work in the pre-season at reduced volumes then started to build volume about 3-4 months before the A-Race (2-3 months before my first B race).  I was planning on doing the lower volume high-intensity plan for the rest of the year and then when I get my race schedule finalized over the next two months to make plans as to how I want to build volume.  Now I am wondering if I should be building volume for the next three months and then look at the speed work when I get to the quality training cycle 2 months before races.  :-)   I don't think there is a right and wrong way, but there may be a way that is better for me right now so I am 2nd guessing myself.  Well...At least I have been through this a few times now and know what has worked in the past.  Starting is always the hardest part.  One I get going things fall in place.  :-)

Have a great day BT.

Last week was my recovery week from Marine Corps Marathon and today is a recovery day with some strength work. My legs are twitchy and I'm ready to get back to training.

A nice break is always needed! Welcome back.

Easy 45 minute run in Z2 this evening. This was the best run I’ve had in a while. It just felt effortless, wish they all could be like that!
