03/20/2017 Today's 6 miler and a 3 month plan

I have three months of a plan set up now that I am healthy again.  I have laid out my workload in front of me old school, paper schedule style.  I checked off the first two events so far, yesterday's race and today's 6 mile run.  There is something about a plan put in place that makes me confident of where I can go.  I do not often lay such a long road ahead, but sometimes, that's exactly what you need to do.  You can see my expectations in the pictures.  Does that mean I am going to get every single workout in and
perfectly done?  I wish, but I will try to and modify when needed.

It isn't about the single workout, it's about the overall program.  Also, this is just my running plan, I will add other bits and pieces whenever possible.

Today, I am a little sore in the quads from yesterday's race.  I stretched it out with a 6 mile run and ran the beginning in around 24 minutes for the first three miles and ran the second half in around 22 minutes and change.  I just felt good and pushed the pace a bit at the end.  It keeps me from getting bored, but I have to be careful not to overdue my easier days.

Kudos for being able to fit 11 milers in on a Tuesday. For me finding the time for longer runs is a challenge during the week. I have to save them for weekends. Keep up the great work!

Thanks, I changed my long run day a few years back to open up the weekend for my kids. My weekends tend to be very busy with soccer, lax, baseball, wrestling, and more!!
