This week I'm kicking off my training plan for the Brazos Bend 50k. I'm hoping that I still have some residual fitness left over from my last two marathon training cycles, to lean on. This is Brazos Bend 50k Training - Week 1.
My plan is 8 weeks and I'm incorporating some back to back runs. Truthfully, I'm a little worried that this plan I drew up isn't enough. I don't have any super long runs scheduled, and I have been taking it really easy the past few weeks. Again, I'm hoping that simply being in marathon training from June to January will help get me across the finish line.
I'm working on my strength training this cycle and increasing my cross training minutes. In February I joined Rachel for the Supermans, Squats, and Twists Challenge. If you haven't joined... you should, it's a lot of fun!
I'm trying to dial in my nutrition again. I've been practicing some intermittant fasting this month.
