So today I convinced my friend to run a marathon with me in May!! I’m still working on trying to get Uma to run it with me…I’ve been planting the seeds in her mind for a while, but now that there’s a concrete date it’s really go time! I would love to run it with her…she’s the original running buddy! First 5K, first half…running my first marathon with her would be amazing. But, it’s also her last semester of school so I could understand her not wanting to train for a marathon while also writing an honors thesis.
But, having a set date means I need a training plan! I’ve heard about a lot of people using the Hanson’s Marathon Method, and I was thinking of buying the book. Good idea? Has anybody used this and loved it? Any tips? Any other training plans you guys would recommend? Nike had it’s own training plan for the half so that was easy, but this requires some more research, and training starts soon, so I’d really, really, really appreciate any feedback/help/info from you guys!
I’m really excited about this! I know there will be many days when I will question my sanity and wonder why the hell I thought this was a good idea, but I keep thinking about the sense of accomplishment I felt after finishing the half, and I know it’ll be even greater than that. Plus, my amazing friends said they would spectate and it would be awesome to have them all there.
2015, I’m so ready for all your adventures!
