What am I getting myself into

By hook and by crook, I got my hands on a Luke's Fit marathon schedule. Actually, one of the runners who is in our Tuesday morning tempo runs gave me a schedule. (I won't "out" that person because I don't wanna get him/her in trouble.)

The schedule is only one week, because Lukes Fit is only "revealing" one week at a time. (Guess they got a big secret that Hal Higdon or Jeff Galloway don't know about).

Anyway, the schedule is actually the third week of the early fall marathon group, and already, they are up to 30 miles a week, with a long run of 9 miles at 8:30 pace. I'll be using this same progam when I start the late fall marathon program on June 14.

Now, I won't freak out about how much work they are doing now. I've run 30 or more miles a week in three of the last four weeks. And I just did a 10-miler in 75-plus degree heat last Saturday in 8:35 pace.

But....

Sigh.

Gulp.

If we are already supposed to be doing 30 miles a week now. And we are talking about a 26-week marathon program, how many miles a week will I be running before I taper for the December White Rock Lake Marathon?

55 miles per week? 60? 70?

My PF and my ITB are flaring up just thinking about it.

Already psyching yourself out?

Think of how prepared you'll be, having run all of those miles. Or perhaps your reputation preceded you, and someone is pulling your leg?

I don't think I'd be able to stand not knowing what was coming up. Actually, maybe that would be better. Then you wouldn't know what to stress about. :)

Wow, 30 miles per week does sound like a ton! Though my real problem may be that I only run one or two days a week max.

You can do it!
