Furman FIRST (Run Less, Run Faster) half marathon training program
Evil butterflies do flips in my stomach every time I think about the fact that next Monday is DAY 1 of my half marathon training program. This is all part of my Master Plan 2011 (for kicking ass), of course, but I'm still nervous about it.
It just looks so hard core. Thankfully others of you crazy folk are out there doing this plan, too, so I can read about how you're nailing your track workouts and shame myself into hitting mine. Right? I'm counting on you!! (No pressure, KIM!)
So here's the deal-yo...workouts from Monday, Feb. 2 through the Indianapolis Mini Marathon on May 7th with pacing times below. Thoughts?
Even though next week is just the start, I'm messing it up already. I'll be sans hubby next week which means I need to be here both morning & night for baby duty. Wednesday's cross-train workout may be reduced to a Jillian video. Also, my long run will be done during the New Orleans Mardi Gras Rock & Roll Half Marathon. Yowza! I just have to muster the discipline to STOP running at 8 miles as per the Master Plan 2011 and walk the rest with minimal jogging.
With some luck, I'll get to meet up with Elizabeth @ Running for Bling at the RNR Half! Maybe even meet up with some other bloggers?
