Half Marathon Training

Half Marathon Training is officially starting this week.  Sunday marked 12 weeks until race day.   To read more about my decision to run my first marathon go here.  

I still have a long way to go and in the last two weeks have developed some knee issues.  I bought a brace today  so this week going to try to run in that and ice after runs and see if that help..  I also ordered a Genesis Pure product Mangosteen that I don't normally use but it helps with inflammation so will try taking that as well.  I'm hoping I can get rid of these knee issues because I have enjoyed running so far minus the aching and soreness in my knee after.  

I had looked at a bunch of different training plans and needed to adjust them a little and where a lot of them had you do cross-training I decided to pre-plan those workouts as well.  I really want to do this and want to do the best I can.  I don't want to leave it up to what I feel like that day so I will be doing my best to stick to this plan!  

Here is my plan, feel free to use if you are looking for one!  

Have you ever ran any races or marathons?  If you have and you have advice I would love to hear it!

  1. So awesome that you're training for a marathon! My hubs just ran a 1/2 marathon and it was awesome. I'm determined to run one as well.
