Did an easy aerobics/resistance training class in the AM. I'll be teaching it in the future, so I just wanted to see what the participants are used to.
Later, I did an aggressive bicep, tricep, and delt workout.
In the afternoon, I met with Coach Bob Williams at the track. Did a couple warm up miles, then ran laps as he observed me and check my HR during runs and recovery. Then a couple more cool down miles. His tried and true approach is to get me running more 5 and 10Ks, work on my speed first and then gear up for a marathon in the winter. Yes, I have to wait nearly a YEAR to run another marathon. :-( But it will be worth it. His plan is to gear me up for a 3:00 to 3:05 marathon by then. That would be great. I haven't tried this exact approach, but my goodness, he has WAY more experience than I have in coaching! In fact, he's been doing it longer than I have been alive!
