Well with 14ish weeks left before my next race it’s time to find a new training program for this half marathon. I haven’t decided if I’m going to throw down the cash and purchase a program through Runner’s World or something like that, or just find a free one and modify it to fit my needs. I am much more confident in how to train, rest, and cross train since running the marathon and I think I might be alright on my own. Races are expensive enough by themselves, I don’t really want to be spending any more money than I have to be. That’s why I like running, it’s free!!
I really don’t have many other goals fitness wise other than toning and getting my time knocked down in this race, preventing injury will certainly help that. I’m going to start researching cross training more extensively in the speed improvement category. I also will not be waiting until a few weeks before my race to start incorporating everything I learned at the nutritionist. That starts now. Super excited to start training.
Also, for anyone in Harrisonburg reading this. Paul Street sucks worse than Port Republic. It’s hills are crazy. But hopefully they will make me faster.
Mileage – 2 miles of hills, sprints, and stair sprints
QOD – Don’t be afraid to give up the good to go for the great.
