|Ward & Wade - Sugarloaf Marathon 2011|
I've been a bit obsessed looking at the many marathon plans out there on the internet. I've checked out Hal Higdon's marathon training and McMillan Running's training programs as well and I like both of them. There are many similarities between the two. Basically, 1 long run, a short run, a medium run, some speed training/hills, and cross training. Of course, there are some additional pieces, but you get the idea. Right? I'm also positive that Jill is thankful I'll be teaching in a different school next fall. That way I won't be bothering her all day talking about marathon training. Maybe I'll just be emailing her all day instead!
Lucky for me, I already have a marathon plan. I've been chosen to be a participant in YogatoRun's marathon training. Training with Terry and Jen will begin mid-June and my running program will be tailored to where I am in my running. In preparation for the training, I've been practicing some yoga on the side - only through some youtube videos - but it's still practice, right? I don't want to look like a complete fool! In addition, I signed up for the 21-day Yoga Challenge. (Stacy told Jill and I about it on our long run on Saturday.) If you sign up for the daily email, you'll get a yoga sequence to follow. I did do the day 1 sequence yesterday, but really didn't get to doing day 2 today. I will make it a priority to get to it tomorrow. The nice thing about it, is that the sequences are very easy to follow AND Izzy and Tucker got into the sequences with me. I love those kids!
