Creating My Half Marathon Training Plan
Like I said earlier, I am running a half marathon in the beginning of May. This is my first one and as of right now I have never run in a race (I am signing up for a 5K next month though)! When I set up my training plan I considered a number of things. First, I looked around online at individuals who have a similar fitness level (or so I think) that I am at and checked out their plans. Second, seeing that I am a former college athlete I have an appreciation for lifting weights so I knew I wanted to continue lifting during my training. Overall when I devised my half marathon plan I took some ideas from others and added a few of my own little touches, like lifting, to my plan. So far I am pleased with my training plan (minus the terrible cold weather that forces me to run on treadmills). I have posted my half marathon training plan on my Fitness page, check it out if you would like. I would love to hear any comments or questions about it.
