When I get back from Fitbloggin’, it will be time to start to focus on my fall races. The first race on the schedule is the Divas Half Marathon in Atlanta on September 6th. This will mean I have a short 10 weeks until race day to get ready. The good news is that I have been running shorter distances and doing some cross-training to this point, but I will have to start adding some serious mileage to my week if I want to do more than walk the race.
To help get myself ready, I have developed a 10-week half marathon training plan. This plan is designed for those who have some running under their belt, preferably having completed a 10K or greater distance race. You will need to be able to complete 4 miles as your starting long run.
If you have kept up on the blog, you know that I run using the run-walk method. I will continue to use this method, running 1.5 minutes/walking 1 minute. Also, this plan accounts for 4 days of running, 2 of which are shorter and will be combined with strength training, one speed run (such as the Diva Pyramid Interval Workout) and one long run. This plan also calls for 1-2 days of cross-training.
