Post Marathon Training

For my post marathon training, I am using Hal Higdon's Post Marathon Training Guide, there is enough tempo and mile repeats to keep some speed back in my workout. Also, I started back on Insanity Workout with Shaun T, boy am I out of shape, the goal is to increase my endurance using insanity on base running days but I have to be careful with over training, keeping mileage low this month to see how my body response. For pure strength training I will be adding P90X halfies, so instead of doing the complete one hour workout, I will only do 30 mins and call it a day but will be alternating first and last 30 mins. the intention will be to switch this to the Montenegro method after 4 weeks.

Sunday: Barry's Bootcamp Chest & Abs
Monday: 3 miles Base + Insanity Plyometric Cardio Circuit  (31:41)
Today: Dynamic Flexibility
1 mile @ Recovery Pace (5.4)
3x1 mile @ marathon pace (6.4) with 3 mins recovery
1 mile @ recovery pace (5.4)   5 miles = 51:34

My coach has got me running cool things like repeats and base and recovery ... and I can now understand the stuff you post!

I notice my Akron post didn't show up so I'll post it again!

Loved the finger getting tired on the oil spray!
