2010 New York City Marathon – Training Guide

As promised, here is my personal 2010 New York City Marathon Training Guide in Adobe PDF and Excel formats:

Looking over this schedule you will notice a few things:

  • Yes.  I am insane.  This is a pretty intense schedule, but I have tried the conservative approach three times with mixed results.  It is now time to try a more aggressive route.  I, of course, will listen to my body and adjust accordingly if needed.  However, my body has been responding very will so far Laughing
  • You will notice the different paces I am running at tie into the Jack Daniels principles I previously discussed.  The times are based off a VDOT score of 51.
  • On Tuesdays, I am running Yasso 800′s at an Interval (I) Pace of 6:20 per mile.  Notice I peak at 10 x 800 four weeks out from the marathon.
  • On Thursdays, I am running at a Threshold (T) Pace of 6:40 per mile.
  • My weekly mileage peaks out at 60 miles per week.  That should be interesting Yell
  • “Run Like A Cheetah, Not A Lion!” – This is how one of my running club buddies described me.  He said I was running slow like lions and now its time to open it up like a cheetah!

Welp.  There it is.  I will be posting regular updates, but so far it has been going great!  Please post any questions, comments, or concerns.

    Cheetahs are only capable of short bursts of speed though. I’m confused wouldn’t it be better to run like a …. I got nothing.
