Now here’s where looking forward comes to play, I need a training plan! I have decided to base my training off of Hal Hidon’s Novice 1 Half Marathon Plan. And have already added it to my workout calendar. While many people use an excel spreadsheet, I personally react well to calendars. So I started with June 16, and plugged the training options into my calendar and rearranged based off a few things I already of scheduled.
Those pre-scheduled events include 2 5ks! The last time I did a 5k was here
Where I completed 2! 5k trail runs in 1 day!
And here is a picture after I had finished the 2nd 5k of the day!
Which was also 5k #6 of 6 for 2011!
During my training I will be traveling to Oklahoma with a few friends to complete the Oklahoma City Memorial 5k and I will also continue the tradition of celebrating my birthday while running a 5k with my mother! Due to the travel plans for Oklahoma, my mother and I will do our 5k in Duluth the week before my birthday.
Hopefully all goes well and I can stick to my plan, but I also have another half marathon that I have my eye on…..The Women’s Half Marathon in Bloomington, MN in August!
Did anyone else get into the Garry Bjorklund Half Marathon and want to do a training run together? Or do you think I’m crazy for scheduling 2 5ks during my half training?
