June Training Plan

With a new hobby / cross training activity plus a 2 week annual vacation at the end of the month, a revision to the training plan was necessary.

I’m currently in training for 2 ultramarathons  (41miles on Aug 4th, 33 miles on Nov 4th) AND for being able to pass my Roller Derby Minimum Standards.

One thing I have learnt over the last 5 years is that too many running miles too soon in a training plan a) leads to loss of motivation and b) increases risk of injury.  So a lot of emphasis at the moment is on maintaining cardiovascular fitness, endurance (after building up to 53mile ultramarathon in April) and developing muscular strength and stamina, predominantly in my core and legs.
