A new Running Plan!

Saturday, July 05, 2008

Well... I had my whole training planned out and now I'm changing it! But it's a good thing. With my runs getting longer... I can no longer dedicate an hour 3 times a week to running during the week... it's just a lot of time on the treadmill (I can physically do it... but I'm bored). So I'm going to a more official training program based off of some of Hal Higdon's plans that has 3 shorter runs during the week and just 1 long run on the weekends. It's an extra day of running, but overall the mileage is the same. It'll just be more convenient with the shorter runs during the week! Plus, there's no way I could run 7 or 8 or 10 miles 3 times a week. I wouldn't have time for anything else!! I'm going to post my new training on my sparkpage, but I wanted to put what I'd been up to here so I'd have it saved forever and ever!

    I'm following one of Hal Higdon's marathon training plans, I'm liking it so far.

    Happy training!!
