    Thanks for stopping by my blog! Are you training for a half or a full? Have you done either before? My advise (assuming it will be your first) is to train conservatively. Pick a day to do your long run and don't skip it! This is the day you will build your distance. Start at a manageable distance, one that you know you can complete.. and build from there. No more than 10% increase in distance per week. You can add walking intervals to make it easier. The point of your long run is to build endurance and strength.. not speed. So do not focus on that, focus on going the distance. During the week is where you'll run shorter distances at a faster pace. Maybe even build in hill intervals or speed intervals (short spurts of sprinting or incline and a very hard pace, followed by a recovery period of walking or light jogging) This helps build speed and muscle strength. Make sure you stretch after every run, ice down achy knees joints and muscles and cross train. Run for maybe 2-3 days during the week, cross train (swim, bike, elliptical, aerobics class/video) on non running days to help you cardio conditioning.) Strength train for maybe 2 days/week. Strength training is very important, as it makes you stronger and helps make your running more efficient. Especially training for your core- the stronger your core, the better you'll feel while running. Make sure though all of this, you are hydrating properly.. it is essential you take in enough fluid to keep yourself hydrated. I drink low sugar Gatorade during my long runs to make sure I keep my electrolytes in check. Also, when you start reaching distances that require you running for more than an hour, I would suggest you take a gel or fuel supplement, else you will run low on blood sugar/carbohydrates and your system will crash. Play around with different brands, my favorite is Gu in Chocolate Outrage.. but try a bunch of different kinds to find out what you like and what agrees with your body the most. Do not do anything new on race day!

    I know this sounds like a lot, but I'm assuming you've never done this before. My best advice is just take it slow, get a good pair of running shoes and change them every 300-500 miles, and listen to your body. I also suggest reading a couple good training books (Runner's World has one, there are different ones out there too for women specifically and running in general.) Map out a plan and stick with it. Make sure you have plenty of time to train, for a half marathon you'll want 2-3 months, for a full 3-4 months is pretty solid. Taper your mileage 2-3 weeks before your race and trust in your training plan. Again, a good training book will help you build a good plan. Good luck and keep us posted on your training progress!
