So, written out here is the plan I came up with (and I tweaked a little after I made this video):
MONDAY: Les Mills RPM, Hip Opening Yoga
TUESDAY: RUN! This is actually going to be my long run day, since I’ve been thinking about it and I’d rather do it when I can leave M.T. with a baby sitter than eat into a weekend day when we could be having some family time.
WEDNESDAY: Rest. Maybe some yoga.
THURSDAY: Stroller run – intervals or tempo
FRIDAY: Les Mills RPM, yoga
SATURDAY: Hill run
Since this is my first full marathon, my focus isn’t on time but rather just finishing and really, experiencing it. All 26.2 miles of it. I figure, once I have my first marathon under my belt, then next time around I can start thinking about time goals.
So, my running friends, what do you think? And what was your first marathon’s training plan like?
