Jake’s Journal: 12 weeks to train for a marathon? Get serious.


BlogPostMarathonTrain For example, the first week was 3×1.5 miles at tempo with 1/2 mile recoveries. The following week was 2×2 at tempo. This week had us do 3×2 miles, with 1/2 mile before, between and after. At any instant, I can glance down and isolate my pace over the current half-mile, or I can see my distance, heart rate or dozens of other pieces of data. And after each run, whether I'm wearing 310XT outdoors or FR60 inside on the treadmill, I can analyze and share each workout on Garmin Connect.You can follow my training (and share yours if you have a race on the horizon) by following @JakesJournal on Twitter. This past weekend was the only time that I strayed from my schedule. Rather than racing a 5K or 10K, I joined Peg and nearly 30 Garmin colleagues at the Psycho Wyco winter trail run for a 10-mile loop of snow and mud. But that's a different story all together. We'll try to keep it clean.
