Time to start training for the Pasadena Rock'n Roll Half! Yip!

Thought I better map out a plan for the Half Marathon in February. I have 11 weeks until the event so should be able to take the mileage up slowly. I typically run twice a week but need to up that and run at least 3 days a week. My work schedule has been cut to just 4 days a week since it has been so slow... so that will help. I saw a cute graphic that Peanut Butter Fingers (one of the fitness blogs I follow) put together so I thought I would do something similar. Here is my plan!
I'm not sure if you will be able to actually see the info in the picture, but I plan on a 3-5mi run on Sun, Cardio on Monday, Strength Training and a 5 mi run on Tue, Cardio on Wed, Strength and long run on Thurs, (starting with 6 mi and increasing to 12 miles by Feb 3rd), Cardio on Fri and REST on Sat. Rest on Sat is actually sort of funny since I usually work a 6 hour shift on Sat and that is one of our busiest days... but that is fine since I still have to meet my minimum Nike Fuelband goal of course!
I'm excited about setting 2013 goals and have started to work on mapping out a few events for the year. I'll post more about 2013 plans as I get things more defined.
Thanks for stopping by. I'm off the Weight Watchers to hear about the new Weight Watchers 360 program being rolled out this week. I've been with WW now for over 5 years and been Lifetime for more than 3. They like to tweak the program every year or two I think so people will buy new cookbooks and what not. It is a business after all!
