Okay, scrap my workout plan. Today was supposed to be the LT run (11 with 6 at LT pace) but as it turns out, I only felt like doing 5 miles (in place of the 6 miles asked by Pfitz. Then I realized there's a way to fit in the dreaded LT run in a perfect setting -- a race.
Here goes the new schedule that will adhere to the 54 mile week.
Tuesday: 5 miles
Wednesday: 12 miles
Thursday: 6 miles with strides
Saturday: 11 miles / 6 LT: Same day as 15K race. Will do 2K warmup, then do the first 5K of the race in slower than marathon pace then the last 10K at half marathon pace.
Sunday: 20 miler. If it's a cool day, I will do this in late afternoon so I get almost a full day's recovery after the LT run. Will start off slow and keep it easy to avoid injury.
