It’s been so long since I’ve looked at my training plan that I wasn’t sure what distance I had on deck this weekend. It’s been so long since I’ve edited it that I hadn’t even finished planning out the month of October. No plan?!
I signed onto Runner’s World this morning, remembering that it now saves any plans you create from Smart Coach. Easy, I’ll just look at the original Smart Coach plan (created in July) and go from there.
My marathon plan was not there. A 5K plan, scheduled for November 14th, was. Said plan was created off of a 73 min recent 10-miler time, and created in early September. Cue total confusion.
Maybe I deliriously put in 1:13:00 as a previous 10-miler race time and, with that, tried to create a training plan for a 19-minute 5K? Maybe Runner’s World is confused? Or the Smart Coach wants me to train for a 5K, instead of a 42.2K?
None of that makes sense! And the time spent theorizing, plus typing that all out, has not gotten me any closer to solving the mystery of the Smart Coach or actually editing what I’ll be running over the next month.
Thank you, internet!
All of that, and in five minutes I just decided to look at how many weeks I have left. With five weeks to go, I’ve relied on the logic that this will be my third marathon so I can’t screw anything up too badly. Fool proof plan, yes?
20 – 16 – 22 – 8 –26.2
Here’s hoping the remaining 5 weeks, as planned out above, will work the magic!
