I'm Sarah, from the Appleton area, and just officially started training with Mike!

Smile

We did the lactic acid step test two weeks after my first marathon - Milwaukee Lakefront Marathon, where I placed first in my age group (20-24). My time was 3:30:28 chip time, 3:31:03 gun time. My goal was to qualify for Boston and I needed a 3:40. I was very happy with my time, especially considering how I performed under the hot weather!

At this point, my goals include, for this year:
Half Marathon (springtime, currently looking at doing Green Bay Cellcom or Music City Marathon in Nashville): 1:32 (last PR: 1:40)
Marathon: 3:10

In 2-3 years I'd love to run a 3 hour marathon.

My training for the week of Oct 28 - Nov 3:

Sunday: Long Run MidZone 1 (7:45 - 7:50 pace) 1.5 hours

Monday: off or cross-train

Tuesday: one hour MidZone1

Wednesday: 45 minutes Midzone1

Thursday: Threshold Run
warm-up lowZone1 for 15 minutes 8 minute pace
5 minutes high end Zone 3 6:37 pace
5 minutes low end Zone 3 6:45........repeat once. Cool-down 15 minutes at low zone 1.

Friday: off or cross train

Saturday; 45 minutes 8:00 pace


I think this is a really great schedule to get my started up...a lot of Zone 1 but still keeping the legs fresh and fast by including a Threshold run. I am glad we are flexible about doing that second interval!

I am excited to begin training and look forward to hearing about others' plans and event goals!

Very Happy
