My Permanent and Final Temporary Revisable Schedule

So it's looking like my fall schedule will consist of a LOT of running. There you have it.

In terms of actual events, I'm running the Fall 50 as my #1 event. #2 events include the Milwaukee Marathon and the Lewis & Clark Marathon in St. Louis. My #3 event is actually two events in one. On August 16th I'm going to run a local 5 mile race in the morning and a local half marathon in the afternoon with the goal of PR'ing in both!

I haven't ever actually run a 5 mile race, so a PR shouldn't be a problem in the morning :)

As for training, I really need to pick it up. Between the Lyme Disease one week, Vacation the next week, and then an allergic reaction to my Lyme Disease medication wiping out last week, I have not been pounding the pavement much. Fortunately, all that's behind me and I'm moving forward and ready to train. I want to try and put in an hour of running at least 4 times during the week and then get some long miles in on the weekend, either in a back-to-back or in one huge clump.

I still am getting "WTF am I doing?!" thoughts regarding the 50 miler every now and then, but that's nothing some good training won't remedy...hopefully without any allergic reactions.

Just read your Ireland trip posting - you'll be happy to know that Bulmers is indeed available in the Twin Cities - I am pretty sure it's Surdyks that carries it. I don't drink it but some of my friends do and I know they have found it locally. Also, you might see it marketed as Magners - same drink, different name.

As for marathon training in Ireland - while training for Dublin in 2004 my first 18 mile run was 12 laps of the 1.5 mile Galway racecourse (in the rain of course)- not exactly fun but most certainly character builiding!!

Glad you enjoyed the Cliffs - it is indeed one of the most beautiful spots in the country.

Since the 50 miler is your main priority, it'll be interesting to see how you balance the speed (5 mile & 1/2) against the endurance build. That's a full plate but what the heck. Go for it!
