FOR example, I have a half-marathon coming up in September so I have devised a plan with the help of my Virtual Race Coach app that will help me get from running 4-5 miles to 13.1 in a set amount of time, 24 weeks to be exact.
THE virtual race coach app has me on a 24 week plan since I'm starting now. My run for today (April 20 when I wrote this post) is a 3 mile long slow run, and my app tells me that all miles should be at 70% effort. The run should be conversational in nature and approx. 60 seconds slower than marathon pace. I can do that.
THERE are many training schedules or plans, if you will, out there and they range from beginner to advanced. All you have to do is Google training plans or schedules and you will find plenty to work with. Here are a couple to look at...
COOL RUNNING has training schedules for everything from a couch to 5k to a full marathon.
HAL HIGDON dot com has everything you can think of an more when it comes to training for a race or event. Think 5k to triathlon etc.
WHATEVER you are training for...there is a website to help you get from where you are right now to where you want to be in a specific amount of time. Good luck and Godspeed!
- Are you training for a specific race or event?
- If so, tell me about it!
- Are you enjoying some sunshine today?
- Have you smiled today?
