Marathon Training

Today's workout was a 10 mike bike ride.  I just wish I were going somewhere - it was on the exercise bike.  Fortunately, it was inside, because it's still freakin' freezing here in Michigan.   Tomorrow is supposed to be better though.

I'm really excited because tomorrow is the official start to my marathon training.  I will be following Hal Higdon's Intermediate marathon training program.  I just went through his spring tune up and really did well with it.  I think I might have missed one workout and I did not miss any runs.  This is an easy week starting with the 10 mile bike I did today and a 3 mile run on Tuesday, 5 on Wednesday, 3 on Thursday, 5 on Saturday and 8 on Sunday.

17.5 weeks until my first marathon!  I'll actually be happy when it's over!  Hahaha!

Have a great day and.......Keep Running!

  2. it really is amazing how quickly it all flies by! and that finish line is so beautiful. but really the first one is just to be survived. then you can fine tune everything and really figure out what you're made of.

  5. We are following the same program! Did my 3 mile run this morning. Good luck with training. I think you will like this program.

    I plan to tweak mine a bit to include speed work, tempo runs, hills, etc... with the week day runs.

  10. Every ride you do on the exercise bike or run on the treadmill just remember, when the weather does clear up you will be in that much better shape than those who hibernated. It will all be worth it in 17.5 weeks!
