I've been working on redesigning my training schedule for the marathon. This month's Runner's World talks about the FIRST running program, which has you doing just 3 intense running workouts a week plus 2 cross-training days. Another great site is McMillan Running--check out their calculator for figuring out how fast you could run for any distance. And to find an event in the Lower Mainland for any weekend you want, see the BC Athletics Calendar.
