Until I successfully registered for Marathon weekend, I have been running aimlessly since MW in January 2022. I finally got off my butt and built up a training plan to get me ready for a half-marathon in September and then pivot into Dopey training for January.
Have any of you found your training plans for your next race?
Here is what the training looks like for me over the summer…
So fun! I’m following the Galloway training plan for a 10 mile race in July and then will switch to the Half Marathon plan for January. I’m a little worried about the July race because it’s in the evening and I’m better in the morning but I’ll start running in the evenings in June. It’s hard to believe I’m the same person I was a year ago! I’m taking it slow but feeling strong. I like having plans written out.
I just completed the Galloway 10k plan and I’ll start his half marathon plan in July. Until then I’m cashing in all my covid credits for a 2x/wk personal trainer at my gym to help me gain back some of the muscle I’ve lost when I started doing so much cardio
For an at home program (I’ve also done it at a gym) I really love the Moves app programming by Madeline Custer (madeline_moves on IG). But since my kids are about to be home for summer I’m taking advantage of the gym childcare (and my gym credit) for now. But I’ll probably switch back to that once I exhaust my credit.
How is everyone’s training going? I have been slacking on outside running, but I joined Hotworx in addition to Orangetheory. I really think doing yoga in the hot sauna is helping me. We had our 1 mile benchmark at Orangetheory 2 days ago & I got a PR of 7:29! I never imagined I would be able to run a run that fast .
I will run outside tonight, but it will be slowwwwww…I just looked at the weather & it’s going to be 86 with a feels like of 91 at 6pm. I was hoping to run 4 miles tonight, but I’m thinking it will only be 3 with those temps.
Congrats on your PR! I use to do Hotworx, loved the sauna aspect but I ran through all the workouts quickly.
Haven’t done much running, lately (I’m dreading my first one back) super hot out here in Texas so I guess that means early morning runs! I have been on the peloton daily though and working on nutrition, definitely want to be set up with that before Dopey Training for me officially starts.
