Originally posted by slowspoke MIDTERM REPORT CARD : half way to goal race I'm about 2.5 months into the plan, with about 3 months left. I started at 10 mpw and am now at 20 and will max at 37. Just ran my baseline 5k course and I'm down from 23:45 (7:40 pace) to 22:18 (7:11 pace). Had it been an actual race with taper and I wasn't on tired legs, I'd have to assume I could manage about a 7:00 to 7:05 pace, especially in a race setting. The MacMillan calculator says I want to be at about 21:10 (6:50 pace) for a 1:38 half. I can see the light I need to make sure I stay healthy because it looks like I'm tracking toward my goal. I'm also down about 4 lbs.
Looking good slowspoke!  I suspect you'll be below 7:00 for a 5k by race day.

Hey - thanks for checking back in on the progress. I wondered how it would turn out. Sounds like things are going well so far. Just keep building those miles (and rationing the pizza and donuts) and you'll keep getting faster. Running lots, being light, and staying uninjured are the keys to getting faster in running, and the rest is just icing.

Using a high-volume schedule for many months is not the best tactic. Build speed and skill several months out, and then transition to a high-volume IM plan.

This plan is designed to make you go faster. 3 workouts per week in each sport, 2 days of strength training and core work. The maximum volume is around 10 hours toward the end of the 12 weeks.

This plan is an advanced plan in terms of volume and intensity and appropriate for someone who is looking to go under 5:00 and as fast as 4:30. There isn’t a lot of fluff in the plan.
