I think I even let it psych me out to the point where I just overate and chose inactivity. Why?!? When I knew running was the bomb-digity? Well, no more. I am back at it, albeit I'm starting at the begining. I'm restarting C25K from the very begining. Yeah, I could push myself harder and run a lot longer but, this ain't my first rodeo. I want to suceed in my marathon goal. I don't want to make the same mistakes I made the first time. I'm starting fresh and I have less than 39 weeks until Seattle Rock N Roll Marathon. I really wanted/want that to be my first marathon. I really like the RNR races and it's in the city I love. Plus I signed up early so I only payed $65!
So, here I am at the begining. Again.
So here's my plan:
- Week 1 - 9: Couch to 5K, Abs 3x's per week following this plan and some much needed strength/cross training. I've been taking classes at my gym like spinning and group power. Lovin' it and feel that I'm building my running base that I neglected to build before. This will include 3 days of running and 3 days of cross training.
- Weeks 10 - 21: Hal Higdon's beginner 1/2 marathon training. It's includes 3-4 days of running and 3-4 days of cross training. Abs will still be focused on and taking time to s - t - r - e - t - c - h.
- Weeks 22 - 39: The Holy Grail of my Training...Marathon time! I've decided to follow Hal Higdon's beginner Marathon training program. Once again, abs and cross-training not to be forgotten this time.
I'd like to invite you all along as I travel the long road to becoming a marathoner. Sit back and relax...grab a cup 'o joe and follow the antics of this one bad mother runner!
