So…I’ve already been busy thinking about my next 13.1
As most of you remember, I am registered (and I’m one of their Ambassador’s of Good Health!) for the Women’s Half Marathon here in AZ in November. And its getting close to that time for me to start thinking about my upcoming training plan for the race.
Just last month I met my ultimate running goal of doing a half marathon in under 2 hours – now that I have that checked off my list, I am ready for my next challenge! So I will be jumping into training for this race aiming at a PR. I haven’t quite decided what that “magic” goal number will be just yet, but I know I want it to be below 1:58.
I am normally pretty easy going when it comes to my training plans, and I typically write my own, but this time I have decided to pick a plan and stick to it.
Lucky for me, when you register for the WHM races they give you a coupon code for a FREE training plan through Active.com – If you have registered for any of the WHM races you’ve got to take advantage of this, it’s huge!
I decided to tackle the “Advanced” plan. Yikes that sounds intimidating! But you know what, I think its going to be lots of fun. I will be running more miles than in previous plans (up to 15 miles for a long run), combined with more speed work and cross training (yay for biking and swimming!)
I am really excited to jump into this plan in a few weeks – all I need is the weather to cooperate and give me a little break on the heat!
Does anyone else have any races they are training for this Fall?
