Hope you had a great Christmas! If you are feeling the same way I am… you are feeling LAZY!  I need to get back into gear and just follow a training plan! Since I am running the Nike Women’s DC Half on April 28, I will decide on a 12 week training plan soon.  However, that leaves me 6 weeks to get ready for a training plan!  Since I am still in my sweats and on the couch today (snowed in!) I made up a pre-half marathon plan for me to follow until February.  This might sound a bit crazy, but in the past I have been very good at following training plans.  After last May’s marathon, I took a big break from running on a regular basis.  I am ready to kick it back into gear and get serious about it again!

Winter Running Plan


This is what happens when I have extra time on my hands.  I think it is pretty cute, so I hope it will motivate me to follow it!

Thursdays and Fridays I may switch because CXWORX is offered both nights at my gym and that is going to be my main cross training.  I may also throw in some yoga or BodyPump too!  Saturday/Sunday long runs have always been something I switch around based on how I am feeling that weekend.  Since it is such short mileage (which I need!) I’m hoping to just do it on Saturdays.


Do you follow training plans? Are you good at following them?

  1. Hey girl! I am also starting up training for a half marathon on April 28! For me it is a repeat half from last year than I have some goals for. I look forward to your future posts and also you training plan! Merry Christmas! 🙂

  2. I make a boring spreadsheet of weekly mileage goals when training for marathons. I include the # of miles for my long runs, but other than that, leave it flexible in terms of daily miles. As long as I hit the total weekly miles, I consider myself accomplished! Next time, I’ll have to decorate mine all cute like yours is! 🙂

  3. Looks like a good plan and I love the graphic! I’m feeling lazy too! If I’m training with you, I follow your plan 🙂 but for the Baltimore Half I followed Hal Higdons’s novice 2 . I thought it was perfect!
