Training Plan

17 Weeks!

Sounds like a long way away…  But its time to jump in and “officially” start training.   This time around, I think I will go back to the Hal Higdon training plan.  It’s an 18 week plan, so I’ll be starting at week two.


I used Hal Higdon with my first half marathon with a lot of success!

So, for this week…

Monday: Cross training

Tuesday: 3 miles

Wednesday: 5 miles

Thursday: 3 miles

Friday: Rest

Saturday: 5 miles

Sunday: 9 miles

Today, I hit the gym for my 3 miles.  I’m not a fan of treadmill running, but having three kids home on Summer vacation, its a necessary evil…  (and you’ll never hear me complain about air conditioning!!)


Today’s run was 3.58 miles, average pace was 7min 50sec.  I’m usually much slower, but when it’s three miles, I need to make the most of it!

Yay for being back on a training plan!  I tend to get lazy when I don’t have a goal!  😉

Happy Running Everyone!
