Aloha all! This week is the official start of my 16 week half marathon training plan. As I have briefly mentioned before, I will be running the Disney Wine & Dine half marathon in November with one of my blend favorites, Danielle! I have been running off and on for the past couple of months, but decided that it would be best to incorporate the next 4 weeks into an official plan instead of putting a training plan off until August.
I will be using the Hal Higdon Novice 2 training plan. I really like how it doesn’t seem completely overwhelming, but still increases mileage at a pace I believe I can handle.
Another major aspect of my training plan will be stretching and icing. My lower back still gives me regular pain that usually ends up in a spasm. I will be attempting to lead the charge against and recurring pain by stretching and icing regularly. Maintaining a happy back will be key for good training and a good race!
While planning my training, I realized that I will have a long run scheduled while at the Healthy Living Summit this year! Who out there is planning on running on the Saturday of the summit? I know I will have about 8 miles to do!
And now, a wrap up of my workouts last week & my plans for this week!
Last week I managed to run 2 times on the treadmill during the week and swam the other days. It was a scorcher here in upstate NY, This week looks to be much more accommodating for outdoors running!
Planned workouts for this week –
- S: 4 Mile Run
- M: Rest
- T: 3 Mile Run
- W: Elliptical / Walk or Swim
- TH: 3 Mile Run
- F: Cross Train
- S: 4 Mile Run
