As I was leaving the RockedKidz Foundation meeting last night, Susan asked me about my training plan for Rocky Raccoon. She asked if I was going to use the same self-made plan I created last year that lead to my stress fracture. Ouch. That left a mark.
Thanks Al & Susan for the inspiring words. So now I am working on a new and improved self made plan that will hopefully not lead to a stress fracture. And I am clueless.
Every “plan” I found on the internet has some aspect that will not work for me. And then you read the fine print or a website from some ultra running guru and they say training for a 100 miler is an individual thing. Each person’s body can handle a different amount of training so cookie cutter plans don’t work. Well great. Isn’t that special.
So given that theory, I will build my miles until just before something breaks. Then I will back off 5% and hold on for dear life????? Well that was not as hard as I thought it would be.
