Monthly Training Plan - June 2010

A couple notables about May 2010 training:
  1. New single month mileage high: 278 miles
  2. Seven straight month of 200+ miles per month
  3. Continued with ab/core/lower back routine. 2 days on, 1 day off.
  4. Continued with my nutrition log. This has had a very positive impact on my training
  5. Injured my biceps - tore tendon of left biceps. This had an affect on my strength training throughout May.
Plans for June include:
  1. Improve on my first 50 mile race finish time with a new PR at The North Face Endurance Challenge on June 5, 2010.
  2. Restart strength training workouts at week 1 since I did not get through the 10-12 weeks straight due to my biceps injury mid-May
  3. Maintain high mileage month to prep for third 50 mile race on July 17, 2010
  4. Begin to review 100 mile races for Fall, 2010
Running Plan:


  1. Good luck, run smart, and have fun this weekend!

  2. You are amazingly organized!

  3. @JogaJogger - Thanks! And good luck to you with your 24 hour run this weekend!
    @Amy - I do my best to stay organized! It's difficult at times though, but it really helps me to keep to a schedule :)

  4. ONE MORE DAY!!! Have a safe flight. :)

  5. Hi Brian,

    I was just thinking of all my friends who're running the race NF Endurance events. Hope it went well for you and that you had fun. Look forward to hearing about your experience.


  6. I think it's because you stay so focused and on top of your training that you are able to achieve the results that you do. I've always said that you are one of the most dedicated people I know...Keep up the great work! :)

  7. As a newbie marathoner looking into running a bit farther in the future, your monthly training plans are really helpful. Thanks for all the information and posts. Hope the NF race went well this past weekend.
