Arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr! How are you, matey? I’m feeling very pirate-ish today — after all, I’m announcing my Gasparilla 1/2 Marathon Training Program!
(Gasparilla is a pirate-themed event in Tampa.)
But before the training schedule — a shout out to my dad, who completed a 125-mile bike race yesterday. Go Dad!
Also, Husband and I had breakfast together this morning — it’s his first day back to school. Only 2 semester to go after this one is finished — yayyyy! We kind of just sat around the table complaining about how we wished we were in Napa instead.
I made Husband and omelet, bacon, toast, and a fruit salad, but I had French Toast.
And maple syrup for dipping. I also enjoyed a lovely fruit salad….
Run the Plank Gasparilla 1/2 Marathon Training Program
Here is my training schedule for my upcoming half marathon, which is on March 1. I used Hal Higdon’s plans as a basis for this plan. I was also careful to keep my weekly mileage increases to approximately 10%, unless it is following a taper week (and then it is a 20% increase from the taper week mileage).
Week 0 represents my running last week on my honeymoon. I used that as a basis for my schedule.
Total Miles = 180.3
8×400 = Speedwork (8 sets of 400 meter sprints)
Cross = Elliptical, Swimming, or Bike
Have a wonderful day!
