I had started out the summer with the intent of raacing a trail 60k at the end of August but I’d been pretty spotty with my run training over the past 2 months so am deciding not to go ahead with that plan.
Instead, I’m refocusing and aiming for Frankenthon - a low-key marathon in Cedar Park on flat-ish pavement/crushed granite, with optional soft grass path. It consists of 3 loops, 8.75 miles each.
The race is actually capped at 150 runners and since I will be shooting for ~ 3:00 marathon, if the caliber of racers is similar to last year I should be fighting in the front pack!
The race is on October 22nd, so I’m currently 12 weeks out which is a solid chunk to get in some solid training. I took the last 5 days “off” focusing on mobility/yoga. Feeling super fresh now and ready to get at it.
As my schedule each week changes a little each week, my weekly training flow may change but in general a week will look like:
- 4 CrossFit WODs
- 3 CrossFit Endurance run WODs
- 1 Yoga class
- 1 total off day
Post 3-month of Frankethon prep? - 2 month mass gain phase so I can ask for new clothes for X-MASS? ha.
