So I have signed up for my 10th Half Marathon!!! Pretty exciting!
Now I have to make sure that I run no matter what the weather is like.
This is a plan that I have used for my previous half marathons. I’m pretty flexible with my weekday runs. I just try to get the long runs done on the weekend.
One big difference for this year is that I just did a 10 mile race and I have a 9.3 mile (15K) race coming up so my long runs are ahead of schedule. I will probably just keep up the 6-8 mile long run and try to get more comfortable with the distance before I increase.
I also play tennis on Tuesdays instead of Mondays. So I may do some long runs on Saturdays and run 3-4 miles on Mondays.
As I said…I am very flexible with my training.
Maybe this time, I’ll even try to do some speed workouts… (probably not!)
I have only signed up for 2 races (so far) — The Turkey Trot 10k on Nov. 27 and the Last Run 5K on Dec 6. I may also do a 5k on Nov 29 and a free 15k on Dec 14.
My work is closed from Dec 20-Jan 4 which is great. That way I can be flexible with my longest runs.
Let’s hope for a warm, dry winter.
Happy Running! How do you train for a half marathon?
