Half Marathon Training Plan

Yesterday, I went over a recap of my magical half marathon race where I scored a p.r. through pure luck (or error, maybe?) I’m by no means a fast runner, but I’m suspiciously getting faster race by race. With a blissfully full schedule ahead of me, I have GOT to get my shit together training-plan wise.

I have two half marathons, a Spartan Race, and two full marathons in my future before the end of the year. If I don’t get myself organized and on a solid training plan, there’s nothing but injuries and regret ahead of me 😦

So, I’m scrambling gearing up for some last minute training for the Hibiscus Half Marathon at the end of May. I have about eight – wait, no, seven – weeks to go until I toe the start line on the 29th. My goal is to get my time under two hours, which would shave about fifteen minutes off my recently hit pr. It’s a lofty goal, but one I’m confident I can achieve.

For the Hibiscus Half, I’ll be using this lazy girl’s training plan from Run Pretty. It’s perfect for me, since I don’t have a great base to work off of and a limited amount of time 🙂

Stay tuned for some workouts over the next few weeks! Wish me luck 🙂

Happy Running,

Nikki
