How Not To Overtrain

I was leafing through Running Times today looking for the article that I was sure would “maximize my long run” when I ran across a little section on overtraining. While I am most certainly not overtraining at the moment…as I haven’t even completed my 10 mile long run #1…I recognize overtraining as a problem for marathoners.

So…here is my answer. I’m cross training the hell out of my marathon training program. I’m doing Crossfit. I’m swimming. I’m biking. I’m doing hot yoga. Oh…and I’m running…a long run every other week and a long bike every other week plus another run or two. I realize I won’t win a prize or even make the top half of my age group but I will finish that marathon and I will do it with minimal to no injuries.
