Training Plan

I don't have much time, meaning planning is essential to making this work. I decided to tweak the last seven weeks of Hal Higdon's intermediate marathon training schedule. I usually follow his advanced plan, but I'm not feeling very advanced, particularly b/c I usually put in at least six 20 mile runs before a marathon. This program calls for, um, two. I haven't been consistent, but I'd say I've done about 25 miles a week the past month. This calls for me to get up to 49. The tricky part, as ever, is the long runs.

Hey! How'd you get so out of shape? Hee hee.

What the hell does internal pigdog mean? I'm sure I'll figure it out as I scroll down to earlier posts, but you might want to add a paragraph on the name on your first page for inpatient types like me..

Good point. I've been meaning to add an explanation. It shall be done.

I am wondering if you use endurox - some cyclists here use it, I have not.

As for amino anything, I know anecdotally and third hand that US Postal riders (and others I am sure) used to start their own IV's after races to get "aminos". So you have a good heritage there...have you tried it?

Dr. Ferrari told me to try the Endurox first, then we move to the drips.
