October 11th!!! I think I’ve given myself enough time to come up with a plan and kick butt. And YAY I am so excited for you! We can virtually train together. :D
A good training plan is about 16 weeks- so take the next two months 2 work on consistency & then go!
Thanks, brother! See, I was looking at plans that were 29-30 weeks long, but I think those were for individuals who were starting from square one in terms of training. I figure I could start halfway in a training plan (as you suggested) since I’ve been running consistently for a bit.
Soooo yeah. I think I’m going to sign up in the next week or so for motivation purposes. I’m really serious about doing this. Scary yet exciting!!!
Maybe I’ll have better thoughts after mine on Sunday, but I say do it- I can share my training plan
Yes, please! And good luck!!! :)
Well… I can only highly recommend the Hartford Marathon. As for training plans, pick one with mileage between 30 and 45 miles per week. And DO THE MILES. You get out exactly what what you put in.
Yeah I did the Hartford Marathon Relay last fall and absolutely loved it. I think I could manage that many miles per week, especially once the weather gets warmer!
just go for it!, about training plans, do some research on the web and choose the one that better fits your schedule, or ask your brother. Good vibes.
:D “Just go for it” is my kind of encouragement. Hah, I’ve already started bugging him for advice…I think he’s pumped that I’ve got the itch!
I have this sudden desire to run a marathon in my 23rd year. I’m not sure if my half marathon fever is looking for the next level, but I honestly never, EVER thought I’d be interested in running a marathon. That said, I want to be able to say I ran at least one in my life, so maybe this is the year to do it, especially since I’d be in relatively good half marathon shape when I would start training.
Ideally, I’d like the Disney Marathon to be my first, but that might not work out due to scheduling. The Hartford Marathon might suffice as a substitute; I was planning on running the half anyway, so why not go for the full thing?
I haven’t committed to anything yet; I just wanted to get my thoughts out there so I can begin to consider it more seriously. Any advice and/or training plans would be welcomed. :)
