    I recently came across a 33 KM race for next spring. This is an odd.distance and I have so many “ideas” running through my head for training.

    My season ends Nov 25 this year and I plan to take an off season over the winter with a maintenance plan.

    I will.have about 13 weeks from the end of the off season and the race. I had thought about utilizating the speed.plan or endurance plan to start the season before I signed up for this race as I am thinking about doing a multi race weekend in the fall that I need to improve my 10K speed.

    This isn’t a race that I’m 100% sure I want to run hard. I might as it would make a great tune up race before fall.

    Here is the issue. What would you recommend as a training plan?

    1) Marathon Plan
    2) HM Plan with increased long runs
    3) HM plan as is
    4) Endurance plan and adjust long run
    5) Something totally different

    I lean to advising you to follow a half-marathon plan with slightly extended long runs. This will give you the best of both worlds, helping you build speed and endurance simultaneously without getting in over your head.
