I know I have told you guys that I like to run, but I don't think I have told you that I am training for my first marathon. That is right, I will be running a marathon in October.
Running can be intimidating to begin with, but once you get started it is addicting. I love the fact that when I am running, I don't have to think about ANYTHING other than running!! It is the only "ME" time that I get, so I take advantage of it. I only run three days per week. Due to past injuries, my knees cannot handle running several days in a row, so I spread them out.
I found this running plan, the First Half Marathon training plan at Runners World, and it fit perfectly with my needs. I am currently in week six, and once I complete this I will start the marathon training plan.
I started with the half marathon first because the longest distance that I had run before beginning this training was 4 miles. I figured that I would build my way up.
I have to say that I like this training plan, it can be difficult, but it is worth it. Do you have a favorite training plan?
