I’m so excited to be running the Mammoth Half Marathon with my sister this June!
But for now…the training.
Once upon a time, I was a slave to training plans. Plans gave me purpose, check marks, and check marks gave me joy. But as I was searching for a training plan this time around, nothing really resonated me. Speed workouts? No thanks. Cross training? Ummm…can I just do yoga? And this tempo run thing…can’t they all just be tempo runs?
So I made my own plan.
Each week I’ll run three times. Two of the runs will stay in the 4 mile range. Four miles is my happy place, the place where I feel free and endorphins light up my world.
The other run will build consistently each week…eventually peeking around 12 miles.
I’ll also do yoga 3X a week. Because I love yoga.
This is my run happy plan. This is my gentle, no judgment plan. This is my half marathon training plan.
How do you run happy?
