So It Begins

Initially I was going to wait until I got to work because my training plan from Vegas is on my work computer, BUT I found a printout of it at home this weekend.  Since I bought a new 2018 planner, I knew I needed to sit down and map out my B2B training.  It's always good to know when training begins.


Ta-da!  February 19th, and this makes is practically 3 full months (13 weeks) of training.  Race is May 20th, so I have one extra day, plus the 3 months.  I'm still figuring out what I need to do during the week, but my long runs have been entered in, in pen no less!  I know I need to get hill work in, and my treadmill will come in handy for that.  I put it at a 12% incline a couple weeks ago to find out what I'm getting myself into on Hayes Street.  Yikes!  I know I mentioned it before, but I'll be walking up a bit of that hill.



Tuesdays on the Run with PattyErika, and Marcia.

    1. I don't have pencils at home, but I know what my weekend schedule will be. It's during the week that will fluctuate.

  2. 12% incline does sound crazy! Good thing you're incorporating that in your training :)

    1. The hill is said to be 11%, and 12% is a button I push on my treadmill. Maybe by training on a harder grade, the actual hill will be easier?

  3. 12% incline? Wow, that must be some hill! Is B2B a 10K?

    1. It's sounds like it. Thankfully there are tips online on how to tackle it. B2B is a 12k, and will be my first one!

    1. It is. Once I got my 2018 planner, I realized I could start putting in all the workouts.

    1. It does. I know some of the hills since I've hiked San Francisco before, but I'm trying to remember this hill.

    1. Yeah. the hill is 11%, but the grade buttons on my treadmill skip a few numbers. 12 is an easy one to punch.

    1. Thanks! I didn't know the treadmill would be so handy so soon after getting it. That's what you get for signing up for a San Fran race.
