Updated Marathon Plan - 12 Weeks To Go!
Now I know I said I wouldn't be posting for a few days, but I wanted to share with you my updated Marathon Training Plan before I take a mini-break. You know what's great about making your own training plan? You can change it as you see fit! My original plan was 20 weeks long so now that I'm 8 weeks in, I've got a better idea of what my goals are for the next 12 weeks.
Further, I was looking at the Chicago Marathon website (just for fun!) and they had some training plans posted. I used one of them to help me modify my next 12 weeks. The plan isn't drastically different, but the climb in miles is more gradual.
Also, I'm learning I need to stretch more. Like it feels ridiculously good to stretch after my runs and I don't want to skip out on stretching as I really think it's important for me.
Alright, I'm off to NYC tomorrow for a few days and then back home to work hard!!! It's my best friend's bachelorette weekend! I'm the MOH - woohoo! Did I mention that she caught the bouquet at my wedding last August and got engaged within 48 hours later?! It's pretty awesome! I'm totally taking credit - JUST KIDDING! :)
Do you find you sometimes need to modify your training as you get into it?
What are you up to this upcoming weekend?
