The weeks are slowly starting to tick by and it's almost that time again. What time? Training time! It has been awhile since I've been training for a particular race, so I am excited to get back into it. Today, I am going to be talking about the training plan that I will be using.
This half marathon will be my seventh one, so I have been able to figure out what kind of training plan works for myself. I personally find that running three days a week, CrossFit the other days, and then one day of rest is perfect. I have used plans that had me running four to five days per week, and I was burnt out by the end of it. But it is important to figure out what works for yourself.
My plan is also one that I made for myself combining a couple other plans and it brought me a PR last year. I wouldn't recommend doing this for your first half marathon as there are some fantastic plans out there such as those from -Hal Higdon or Runner's World.
Here is my plan:
If you haven't signed up for the race yet, there is still lots of time. Early bird pricing ends on January 15, 2013. Go here to register!
Training officially starts next week for me, so if you see me out on the pathways, say hi :)
