Two weeks and counting until I start training for my next half! I'm so excited! It's been since January 2015 since I ran my last half marathon. Lately, I've been focusing on strength training and doing some interval training to help build my endurance because I'm determined to run this race under 2 hours... I'm kinda slow, and I'm okay with that, but I'm always looking to improve! I completed my last race in 2 hours and 16 minutes, so I'm hoping to shave off at least 16 minutes... which won't be easy, but I have no doubt I can do it! Although this heat has been brutal to run in...
This is the first time I'm actually sticking to a training program for running. Before, I just kind of ran and did whatever I felt like doing, but I'm trying to make this race a PR and train for a full marathon in January. I've done a lot of research and I know my own body's capabilities and what I need to do to perform my best. I've looked at several training plans, but I ended up creating my own... and of course I will be keeping track of everything using my fitbook!!
More to come on how I fuel my body, my gear/equipment, and my motivation! But, here is a preview of my training schedule:
