NWM DC Training Plan

I ran 3 miles yesterday and today, so I can check those off my pre-training plan I posted yesterday!

I ran outside today and it was very windy! I took one walk break during mile 2 and was happy to keep it under a 10 minute mile.  I looked at my stats later and saw I walked almost 2 minutes, so I must have picked up the pace to keep that mile down.  I need to push myself more often so I get used to running in the low 9’s.

It was snowing yesterday, so I ran my 3 miles on the treadmill.  I ran 1.5 miles, got off and did 10 minutes of abs/planks and then got back on the treadmill to finish.  I did a 1:30 plank, then one CXWORX ab track I have memorized and one BodyPump ab track.  I am sore today!

My Training Plan for the Nike Women’s DC Half Marathon…


I based this plan off of Hal Higdon’s Novice 2 Half Marathon plan, but added just a bit to the mid-week runs.  I’m hoping to cross train at least once a week, but twice would be great too! My cross training will be CXWORX, BodyPump or yoga 🙂
