I have two goals that I want to achieve within the year. Break my 21K record of 2:05:52 and break my marathon record of 5:53:03. I am eyeing the upcoming Manila Milo Marathon to break my 21K record and the Run United Philippine Marathon to break my marathon record. I thought I’d chronicle that pursuit. Who knows? Maybe somebody out there can learn from an aging (I’m close to 50 years old) runner.
The Milo Marathon is July 28. That gives me 8 weeks of training ahead of me. Given that I am not sedentary and have been running consistently for several weeks, I suppose I can jump into one of these training plans midway.
