First day on the new program

So today was my first day on the new Cal Coast program. I cheated a little and ran 10 minutes longer than the program called for, covering almost 3 miles in my usual slow pace.

As I mentioned in one of my earlier posts, this program looks a little light. I understand that the program needs to be structured for non-runners, but week one includes 20 minute runs Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and then a 3 mile "long" run on Saturday. If I stretch the 2o minute runs to 30 minutes, then this week will be 12 miles. Well below what I was running on the recovery program.

So, we'll see how it goes. I got the go ahead to add a couple days of cross training to the schedule, so I'm sure you'll hear about my indoor rowing and weights on Tuesdays and Thursdays.


  1. Saw your blog and thought you might be interested in
    my website and fitness program called Indo-Row.
    Rowing is amazing cross training and is part of my ironman training. That is next for you after the marathon. Good luck in your training. Best, Josh

  2. Josh:

    Thanks for stopping by. I actually had read about you last month in Rowning News. You don;t have to sell me on indoor rowing - I am an avid fan of the sport. I am glad to see that you have been able to take it to a new level with your affiliation with the Sporting Club. I wish you the best!
