February Running Plans

I know my last attempt at writing out a plan for the month did not turn out well but here are my running plans for February and here’s hoping February turns out to be a better month than January was.

I don’t have any races scheduled for this month but as mentioned last night, I will be starting my 16 week training program for the Ottawa Marathon next week. That alone will help me increase my mileage this month.

Once again I be using Bart Yasso’s training program although I will modify it somewhat by adding in some speed work and hill repeats earlier in my training. I am not sure yet how often I will be doing hill repeats but I plan on getting in some speed work once a week at the indoor track I tried out a couple of weeks ago.

My plan calls for 129 miles, or 207 km this month. Since I will also be running regularly this week and my 16 training plan starts next Monday I should be able to get in about 250 km this month.

Also for this month, as I have done for my past two marathons, my Friday posts will be a weekly wrap-up of my training as I count down the 16 weeks to go until the Ottawa Marathon in May.

What are your plans for February?
