Double Chubb Training

I've decided to start training for the Double Chubb race coming up in April '09.  It's the 50k counterpart to the 25k Chubb race I did this last April.  I think this is a good first "marathon" in that it's far enough out for me to train for and I'm very familiar with the course.

Egon Rinderer referred an excellent book to me of which I'm basing my training on:  "The Non-Runner's Marathon Trainer"

It's a book geared towards training for a road marathon in 16 weeks.  I plan on stretching out the middle and increasing the max distance it has you run.  It peaks at 18 mies.  I plan on peaking at 26 miles (holy cow, a marathon in training.....) with the additional 8 weeks I'll have.  I'm planning to do the long runs at the Chubb on Saturdays when my schedule permits.  Grant's trail and Mastodon will consist of the lower mileage days.  I think this will give me a good mix of road and trail/hill training.

Needless to say, I'm excited.  My leg still bothers me from time to time but I think a solid and gradual training schedule will do my leg good.  Add that to a good stretching and icing routine and I think I'll be just fine. 

And perhaps I'll get down to my 170 lb goal by the end of the training.  I'm currently at 178 - 180 so it's certainly doable. 

Stay tuned for updates.  You can track my progress via my activities (gps watch):
