8 weeks till my first half marathon and I finially came up with a plan!
Sunday, March 04, 2012
Yep, I did it. I committed to my first half marathon, application is in there is no backing out now!
I have 8 weeks to get ready so i had to come up with a workable plan. I added P90X in for strength and abs work also I find that the Yoga X and X stretch have been a big help so I worked them in. I have the X stretch worked in on my rest day, does anyone see a problem with this? I actually find it quite relaxing and usually when x-stretch is on the schedule I do it right before going to bed. I'm hoping I'm not overdoing it by putting it in on the rest day but didn't know where else to go with it, lol! Only so many days in the week!
I also have a second half scheduled 4 weeks after the first and I am not quite sure how to train after the first. Should I taper down for a week and then start back up at the higher mileage?????
here are the first 8 weeks up to the first half on April 28:
