I’ve circled this week in my head months ago. This is the final simulation week for the Disney Dopey Challenge (5k, 10k, 13.1, 26.2 in 4 days). I’m following the plan Hal Higdon created for this event.
Here’s what this week looks like:
Tue: 5 miles (+ weights)
Thu: 2.5 miles (I’ll do 3 + weights)
Fri: 5 miles
Sat: 10 miles
Sun: 20 miles
I feel pretty good going into it. My knee feels the best it’s felt in weeks, I didn’t even tape it before my 5 miler today. We’ve also had a warm front come through, so it’s patio weather right now, but they say the weekend will get cold again.
Either way, I’m ready to knock it out! I’m already trying to figure out which taco joint I’m going to hit up after the 20 miler. That is good motivation right? Tacos?
After that it will be all taper time until the main event! We’re getting close! When I was putting in the miles for this back in July and August, it felt like we’d never get here, but now we are! Let’s do this!
I know most of my friends are in the off season right now, but is anyone training for anything? How difficult is it to train this time of year…what with all the darkness, coldness, & rich foodness going on?
