Follow me while I train for my 13th half marathon!

Hi ladies!  It's been a while since I've posted anything on this blog. I'm going to be training for another half marathon after taking a decent chunk of time off from races because of plantar fasciitis and then a weak ankle. I've been doing little running and a lot of cross training. I'd love for you to follow me on my road back to running a half marathon healthy!

I'm a running coach but am not good at writing my own training plans so I've decided to follow one of Hal Higdon's free half marathon training guides. I'm interested to see how I do with a general program because we know there are so many out there and not always the best way to train. I've trained for plenty half marathons and I know my body and what works and what doesn't so I know if I need to modify any of the training I know how to do that. My suggestion for newbies would be to chat with a coach and work on a plan that works best for YOU and YOUR life and goals.

I'm excited to be on a schedule and I'm also excited for you all to follow along.

Monday, January 29th - Today is day 1, week 1 of my 12 week training program. I will be running the Coastal Delaware half marathon on Sunday, April 22nd! Today called for 30 min. of cross training and I decided to go a bit above and beyond and did a 79 min. 1000 calorie Fitness Blender workout which consisted of HIIT, Abs/Back work and full body weights! I will be making sure to stretch and foam roll as much as possible to ward off any injury!
