****Been running more than my suggested weekly mileage? If so, then simply reduce your mileage, this “recovery” week, by at least 30% from what you’ve been running.
*March marathoners = “recovery week” = ~35 miles
*April marathoners = “recovery week” = ~30 miles
*May marathoners = 20-25 miles
*NYD5K = race week taper mileage
*Ten Miler trainers = ~20-25 miles
MONDAY December 25
If you can get in some mileage great, otherwise, simply enjoy the holiday!
WEDNESDAY December 27
***Please come join us at the UVa track parking lot at 6:00am for one of the following options.
*March marathon = we will be heading over to Cameron Lane (just off Ivy Road across from 7-11) for 6 x “Cameron Crazies”. Each Crazy is a half mile hilly loop, where you will work the uphills and actively coast on the downhills. I’ll explain in detail when we get over to Cameron Lane…the half mile course will be marked.
