    14: Welcome Back

    14: Welcome Back

    I've been gone, courtesy of a temporarily non-functional microphone and a ridiculously crazy fall. Time to amp it back up for some triathlon and marathon training in 2017!

    13: Training Volume/Don’t Be Dumb

    Keep your training volume increase reasonable—10–15% weekly, with a hard maximum of 20%. Failing to do so is a good way to end up sick (like I did).

    [PRC]5: Recovery

    It's important to include rest in your training plan. Especially when you do extra-long runs.

    12: A Training Plan

    12: A Training Plan

    A good mix of runs for half-marathon training.

    - Two or three aerobic runs, 4--6 miles long, run entirely aerobically.
    - One *tempo run*: 6--10 miles long, run 50% aerobically, 50% harder-than-race-heart-rate.
    - One day of speed work (800-meter repeats, or a quarter-mile hill workout), every other week, usually about 5--6 miles total.
    - One long run, approximately 80% done aerobically, with the last ~20% at "race heart rate".
    - One day of cross-training (a 30--45-minute bike ride).

    [PRC]4: Hydrate!

    12-mile runs without a water bottle are a bad idea.
