I’ve just committed to run a half marathon. I am the girl who hated running and avoided it until the last few months. My husband has encouraged me to start running and now my girlfriend from Iowa just suggested we join her for half marathon in June!
Do you, lovely readers, have any training suggestions? I’m very curious to know more about running schedules for 5 months before the race. I’ve currently worked up to running 3-4 miles several times a week. I’m looking up several half marathon schedules online for suggestions, for example:
Beginners’ Half-Marathon Training Schedule (from running.about.com)
|1||Rest||2 mi||Rest||2.5 mi||Rest||3 mi||2 mi EZ|
|2||Rest||2 miles||Rest||3 mi||CT or Rest||4 mi||2.5 mi EZ|
|3||Rest||2.5 mi||CT||3 mi||Rest||5 mi||2 mi EZ|
|4||Rest||3 mi||CT||4 mi||Rest||6 mi||3 mi EZ|
|5||Rest||3 mi||CT||3 mi||Rest||7 mi||3 mi EZ|
|6||Rest||4 mi||CT||4 mi||Rest||8 mi||3 mi EZ|
|7||Rest||4 mi||Rest||4 mi||CT||9 mi||3 mi EZ|
|8||Rest||4 mi||CT||3 mi||Rest||10 mi||3 mi EZ|
|9||Rest||5 mi||CT||4 mi||Rest||11 mi||Rest|
|10||3 mi EZ||4 mi||Rest||3 mi||CT||12 mi||3 mi EZ|
|11||Rest||CT||Rest||3 mi||CT||5 mi||2.5 mi EZ|
|12||Rest||2 mi||20 minutes||Rest||20 minutes||Race Day!||Rest Day!|
CT= CROSS TRAINING, EZ= EASY
Please feel free to give me any tips or suggestions! They will be greatly appreciated!
Yay for my favorite show!
I know I’m obsessed, but I just had to share another Glee tidbit! If you didn’t already hear,

Glee won Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series at the SAG awards last night!
Last weekend, they won Best Comedy at the Golden Globes and earlier this month they won People’s Choice for Favorite New TV Comedy!
Look at all these lovely rainbow colored dresses too!
