A steady-state plan

ORN: 4 mile walk. Ran maybe .4 miles.

The pull on my right calf seems to be taking a long time to heal. Which is making me think that the plan I had to run two laps of the Huff is not going to make it…the time was close anyway and I’ll be lucky to get back to decent mileage even by next Saturday.

And so I consulted my Hal Higdon plans today. Eureka. I can toggle between weeks 8 and 9 of the half marathon plan aud infinitum. Speed work each work, 9 miles one Saturday, 10 the next. Right at 30 miles a week.

By so doing, I’m always 6 weeks from tuning for a half marathon and 10 weeks from a marathon. Makes sense. And doable. And I can relax.
