Training Changes

Posted on

This week, I focused on making sure I had 4 runs for the week. I had noticed that I’d been letting myself slack a little bit and only having 3 runs, not good.

I made it happen.

Heart rate training made my volume a little bit less even with the extra day.. Hmm…

In other news, I’ve signed up for an individualized training plan from McMillan Running. I am using them for a 12 week plan that will get me to the SoCal Wine Country Half Marathon in June. The Big Bear Half is out the window, it may be used as a supported training run, but the half focus will be in June followed by the Long Beach Marathon in October.

I’ve never had a personalized plan before (minus the 6 weeks my husband attempted to coach me) so I’m excited to give it a try and see if that will help me make the transition to being a runner. My husband thinks I should try a coach, but I wanted to see how following a training plan went before making that commitment.

Running coach, yay or nay?
