I have read nearly every book on running in my years. I have quite a library! You'd think I'd figure it out! So I am trying to put it all together into a training plan that I can use on the treadmill and transition to the roads.
My PRIMARY goal...I must hold to this....is to lose pounds!!! I am down a solid 7 and have at least 7 to go....in all reality I truly believe I ought to be in the 160's but 172 is my goal as of right now.
So I need to maintain focus and not run into injury again. Today it was hard to do but I forced myself to run a "recovery" run. The pace is important. I held between 5.2 mph and 5.6 mph....running the majority of the 55 minutes at 5.6mph.
This was an easy conversational pace and I really didn't feel any residual effect from the speed session yesterday.
My goal this week is 350 treadmill minutes total. I am up to 265, leaving 85 minutes for two runs. Tomorrow will be a "general aerobic" run. I will probably run this at the top end which will be 6.2 or 6.3mph.
Then Saturday will be a couple of 10K pace miles or faster...I think, kind of a tempo run.
Well, I sure hope you all have a wonderful Christmas time. I look forward to seeing my youngest son, and am sad because the oldest and his family can't come home this year...but we have skype!!! I am conflicted about Christmas this year....I enjoy and rejoice in the reason for the celebration but not having the family together is a downer..... Peace!!

So we call this season fall...well it fell! Nearly all the leaves are down and you can see much deeper into the woods. Time stops for no...
So I am certainly a young looking 62 yr old. Especially with my hat on, but if I get knocked off my routine I find it causes me drag. I...
