I've been training consistently since July '07. The first two months were really just about trying to gain back some level of fitness and lose some weight. I may look into those races as ways to gauge where I am at, but I don't have any notion that I'll be able to wake my long dormant fast twitch muscles that soon. Well, the one or two fast twitch muscles I may still have anyway. I know I need to take it easy this next month and let my body recover from the marathon. Thanks for the link on the speedwork without the track.
I've been looking for races, but I'm guessing this attempt is going to come down to a solo time trial. I live in Knoxville TN, and the Knoxville Track Club is pretty big, but I don't know if they have any actual track meets or events with open divisions. I'm hoping to get more active in the club as I know they have alot of talented guys who are fairly active, and they have track workouts once a week down at UT. I can do long runs and hills by myself no problem, but getting to the track and forcing myself to gut out 800's or 1200's or whatever it may be is a little tougher. All I really want to accomplish with April is to stay healthy and injury free, and just do some more base miles. Then in May, June and July really start focusing on the speed and strength stuff.
