It's official! I have 6 1/2 months to train for the 2013 New Bedford Half Marathon and I am so excited to get an early start on training this year. One thing that I plan to do is more total body workouts, not just cardio. As much as I love the way that running makes me feel, I want to have a better total body fitness in 6 months. I think that it is a very realistic goal. My sister is now home from college and dedicated to workout out, as is my mom, so I hope that we can stick to a plan and see the results together!
This a schedule I found for a half-marathon training program. I think I will test it out for a few weeks and decide later if I will stick to it. The duration is only 12 weeks, and I have twice that to prepare, so maybe I will take 10-12 days for every week of the program. We'll see.
I am really excited to get back into running as an every day occurrence, not a chore.
