I’m linking up to Food Fitness and Family. She’s an awesome fitness blogger who also has plans to run the same half. She’s going to rock it too!
I’ve signed up for the Go! St. Louis Half Marathon and I’m so excited to have a goal (date) to work towards.
I picked a training plan than jazzed it up a little. I used Hal Higdon’s Novice program and then customized it for my schedule. Hopefully if you’re prepping for an event like this and are using an out of the box training plan you are making adjustments based on your restrictions,etc.
I realized a while back that these types of plans are a great starting point but to try to follow it exactly didn’t work for me. After all, Hal doesn’t know what my constraints are. He only knows what I need to do to successfully run a half but by modifying it to suite my schedule, Hal and I become a winning team.
So I wanted to show you how I modified it.
Are you training for anything? How did you put your plan together?
