Hey everyone ðŸ™‚
Iâ€™ve finally put together what I think will be a solid training plan for my first half marathon coming up in June!
The training plan is a bit unusual because my friend Ashley and I just did the Cherry Blossom 10 Miler two weeks ago, so we wonâ€™t be starting from scratchâ€¦ more just continuing what we were doing and slightly increasing mileage!
So if you are starting from scratch, please donâ€™t follow this plan â€” you should build up much more slowly!
Hereâ€™s the plan by month (I shaded out the days up until tomorrow):
In many ways, this training plan is very similar to our 10 miler training plan:
The main differences between this plan and our 10 miler training plan are:
Iâ€™m hoping Iâ€™ll be able to finish out this training and half marathon without any knee trouble. Training for the Cherry Blossom went really well, but as youâ€™ll remember I had some knee trouble while training for the Army Ten Miler in the fall.
I think the biggest things that helped me stay (knock on wood) injury free so far this spring are:
Have you ever been injured from running? How did you deal with it? Are you able to run pain free now?
And â€” what do you think of the training plan? Any comments/suggestions?
