One of our family’s goals for the New Year is to run a half-marathon together.
Unfortunately, the first one we have our eyes on is only ten weeks away, which means if we are going to make that one happen, we’ve got to start now.
It has been thirteen years since Doug and I ran a full marathon together. That time, it took me a month just to build up running a full mile.
This training program will have to be quicker than that. We ran the first 1/2 mile a few days ago, and my legs are still sore! But our family’s code words for 2015 are “discipline” and “joy,” and I know if we stay disciplined with the training, we’re going to enjoy the results.
Here’s our 10-Week to a Half-Marathon, in case any of you want to join in. It calls for three runs a week (short, medium, and long). Just work them in on whatever days are most convenient for you:
Just click on the image to print. I designed it with two copies per sheet, so cut it in half and give the second to a friend or family member. It’s always more fun when you run with a training buddy.
If running’s not your thing? You can still make 2015 your healthiest year yet. Later this week, I’ll tell you about a great resource to help you do just that!
In the meantime, I hope your last few days before Christmas will be characterized by a quiet hush rather than a frantic rush.
Save all your rushing for the track. 🙂
