Now that I have a week under my belt at the new/old job, and yesterday was my last day at my part-time job (Ann Taylor), I feel like I can finally unwind a little bit and give my blog (and my readers) a little more love. Woohoo!
That little bit of extra free time also means that I can refocus on my fitness goals. I have been playing more volleyball, and my runs (when I run) have been longer, so I haven’t been totally sedentary, but I know that I can do better. And so I shall!
This week, I’ll be beginning my half marathon training. I’m using the No Meat Athlete Half Marathon Roadmap. I’m not vegetarian, but one of my vegetarian friends suggested using the running plan to successfully complete my first half marathon. So, to have some accountability, and to put my plan down in writing, I put together my first week of half marathon training, using the Roadmap as a guideline.
I haven’t done much lifting the past few weeks, and I’m starting to feel a little weaker. I’m glad that this training program has cross-training built in, that way I can get some strength training in, and I won’t have to worry about incorporating volleyball into my plan.
Here’s my plan!
What are you planning to do this week? Have you ever done a half marathon? If so, how did you train for it? Have you ever done a running plan?
