    FYI - you are in FL take advantage of the nice weather and hit those longer runs. Could be somewhat similar to Derek's 10 day taper graphs.....
    Sounds good, ill incorporate. I plan to stay on grass/turf much longer this season also.

    If you remember Charlie didn't have an issue with longer runs in spp. They won't be fast like they would be in June and you would always use a 10-30m int limit.

    The long days could progress several different ways:

    1: Control speed work>split runs>SE
    2: Long hills or long sled pulls (empty sled)>special end>SE
    3: Control speed>SE

    THe reason for all that speed was that I had planned on hitting indoor meets from december to Jan. THing came up and it didnt happen. But ill add your changes.

    Doesn't matter, no one cares about indoor. Look what the Jamaicans do - make your bread outdoors. You can still run indoors but i wouldn't change your whole plan for it.
