Hell with that "Basic Marathoner" training schedule I cited in the previous blog. I just looked on the New York City Marathon site and I am bumping up to the "Competitive Marathoner" schedule. That one's for me. This is the page I am printing out and keeping with me these next 18 weeks:
I just did 27 miles as my final Base Week, so jumping up to 32 this week is OK. Plus, I run 6-7 miles on a pretty standard basis because I love to run around all of Central Park. The other one called for 4-milers out the wazoo; my frequency will just have to increase. I'm ready for it. I am part of the Big Cat running team. I am not a little tiny baby kitten sucking milk out of an eyedropper.
My goal is 4:50 and I have some serious ass kicking to do. It is going to hurt, but no pain no gain. I only live this one life and I am going to push myself to the limit. My work habit ain't no habit, man, I do it on purpose; I push myself to the limit so my talent'll surface. Yeah, that's right. Here we go.
BTW, welcome to any new Twitter friends. I am @marathoner over there. My contact info is right here and I also am responsible for MLBlogs and my community blog is right here.
