Training Plan


In the spring of 2008 I began training for my first full marathon. I completed that marathon in February 2009. The above picture is of my sprinting to the finish line and I can't wait to do that again.
You can follow my training plan at the bottom left hand corner of my blog. I have been cleared to begin running so I am starting back at the beginning and working my way up to my 2nd marathon which will be February 2012. I will run 4 times this week & you are more than welcome to join me!

This weeks workout:
Warm up: 5 minute walk
run 1 minute walk 1 minute (repeat 7 times)
Cool down: 5 minute walk

It sounds really slow but I can assure you from a successful training 2 years ago that if you follow this slow beginning starting plan your foundation for training for a marathon (26.2 miles) injury free will be set! If you've ever wanted to run one I can help take you from your couch to a full marathon over the next year if you stay focused, keep your eye on the goal, and run with me! Let's do this!

  2. hmm... I might just take you up on that. I'm in my 2nd week of the couch to 5k plan. Is your workout plan similar? You are awesome to already be running! Took me a long time to get motivated.
