Pre Boston Marathon Training

I started a Pre-Boston Marathon Training program which started last week.  This program is more about getting in more miles before the hard core training program starts.  I am at about 40-45 miles per week on average.  I will be using a marathon plan from the book "Advanced Marathoning".  The plan starts at 65 miles per week.  The max goes to 85 miles per week.  Not sure what I am going to do when my shoes wear out...

I am on my 4th pair of running shoes this year.  I have run over 1,500 miles so far.  I might even hit the 2,000 mark??  That is scary to think about.

Yes, Pfitz' Advanced Marathoning book is a good one. Most folks I know do the 55MPW program, though. Will be interesting to see how you far on the higher mileage one. Good luck and get a couple pairs of more shoes!!!

I use Pfitzinger's teachings, as well as, Vdot teachings of Dr. Jack Daniels and teachings from others, such as Dr, Hal Goforth, who has completed 34 Boston Marathons,
