Accomplish Your 2012 Goals: Free Half-Marathon Training Plan
By icametorun on January 22, 2012
This weekend has been pretty busy. It snowed most of the day yesterday, and it's been freezing. Definitely a departure from the mild winter we'd previously been having. Because of the temperatures, I ended up spending a lot of time inside working on putting together training plans for Team Challenge Brooklyn since I recently found out that I'll be working as the Run Coach! Getting the plans coordinated has been a lot of work, but I've loved every minute of it. It feels so good to be doing something I enjoy so much, and to be doing it as a job is an added bonus. I am really excited about this opportunity, and I can't wait for us to get the season started on February 18.
Team Challenge Brooklyn participants will have a choice of three different half-marathons: Virginia Wine Country, Kona, and Napa to Sonoma, all of which are going to be amazing races! We'll have about 16 weeks from the beginning of the season until the Virginia Wine Country half--plenty of time to get ready to run. I made sure to put in options for runners of all levels, including those who might want to opt for a run/walk program instead of a training program consisting solely of running.
I also figured I'd make a variation of the Virginia Wine Country training plan available to anyone who wants it. It's designed to be pretty flexible, and you can run 4 or 5 days a week depending on what's best for you--if you prefer a 4-day-a-week schedule, I recommend using Sunday as either an additional rest day, or an opportunity for some cross-training.
You can download the training plan here: Half Marathon Training (at least I think you can, if I've made the right assumptions about how technology works...which is not something I'd suggest taking for granted). If you do decide to try it out and you have any questions, feel free to contact me. Hopefully, this will be the first of many plans I post here.
