Significant changes in schedule after recalculation

Kevin Feb 17, 2017 09:18AM PST

Today, I added a race that occurs in October. I have a goal race scheduled in April. When I added the race, my training schedule changed significantly. For example, my long run for tomorrow changed from 11 miles to 9. There's no reason that I'm aware of for that change to have occurred. Is there something that can be done to revert back to the schedule that existed prior to the new race being added?

Great question! You are doing terrific, and your schedule change is reflecting that. We purposely reduced tomorrow’s run to prepare you for your next, more challenging training cycle. It escalates to include two 12-13 mile runs in March before tapering for race day on April 9th.

Sometimes we like to begin these training cycles with legs that are a little more fresh.

Kevin,

No worries, and my pleasure.

We don’t recommend adjusting the mileage on your workouts or manual manipulation of your Training Calendar, but you are ultimately in control. So if you have found a regimen that is working for you, then go for it. Just be sure to listen to your body.

Threshold falls under the Pace Run category and also includes Tempo and Speed workouts. If are able to achieve an additional Pace Run each week, you will likely notice expedited conditioning. With that said, Pace Runs are pretty intense, so you want to make sure you are going into them rested and fully recovered from your previous workout. Finding a nearby track might also be a good idea as the surface is a little easier on the body. Also, you may notice that we wont always give you 2 Pace Runs each week.

Good luck, and we are here if you need us!
