It’s almost time…

Next week I officially start half marathon training! Eek! Per week, that means four runs (three easy runs during the week and one long run on the weekends), one day as a walking cross-training day, and two rest days.

My plan is mostly based on the Hal Higdon Novice 1 Half Marathon Training Plan. I extended it a bit, putting in a recovery week every fourth week and by making my longest run greater than the half marathon distance (similar to Galloway’s plan). Strength training is also to be done twice a week.

I’ll be comparing this table to my actual runs in my weekly updates to keep on track.
