Marathon training

June 11, 2011

Following the Hal Higdon Schedule for marathon training I am almost through my first week. Some of the days I doubled up in the workouts with training with Milt and spinning classes when they were available, though I don't think I will do that every week.




  • Cross train (stairmaster and weights)
  • Spin class with Laurie


  • One hour training with Milt
  • 3 mile run


  • 5 mile run
  • Spin class with Chrissy


  • 3 mile run and planks


  • rest day


  • 5 mile run and planks


  • 8 mile run - ran 9 miles since it was 3 miles around the park I did it 3 times!

For my meals I stayed with low calorie, high protein diet and it seemed to really make a difference with my workouts. Although the toughest day was running 5 miles then spinning for 70 minutes I felt awesome when I was done!

It seemed after running the Cleveland half marathon I wasn't eating my best and not feeling my best when running, so I definitely see the connection with how you fuel your body will depend on how it performs!

Now to just keep on track...
