Change in half/full marathon training schedules
New day, new idea about running schedules.
I’m in week 3 of a 17 week half-marathon training plan. It’ll finish up October 4. I had originally planned on taking several weeks “off” (just maintenance runs, basically) before starting on a marathon training plan, but, the Dallas Marathon is about 10 weeks after this cycle ends!
The Dallas Marathon was really cool.
I want to do it again.
Therefore, the new training plan is this:
- Half marathon training as planned, ending Oct 4.
- Two weeks downtime / recovery time, mostly easy runs and whatnot.
- Eight weeks marathon training.
- Dallas Marathon December 13!
I want to do the marathon, even if I have to do a walk/run due to not enough training.
So, thoughts and comments?
