The hardest part about registering for my first half marathon is finding the time to train for it. Working full time, being a single mom, rocking a major blog series, and having a full volunteering and social schedule means there’s not a lot of extra time. I knew that I wanted to keep my run days
I knew that I wanted to keep my run days to a minimum with two lunch runs, plus a weekend long run and cross training when possible. I was happy when the SeaWheeze training plan arrived and saw that there are no more than 4 runs scheduled so I’ve adapted my training schedule around this plan. Being in the middle of the Where to Workout in Red Deer series, my workouts with that will be used as cross-training, and any downtime will be for fitting in my yoga practice or home-workouts.
I’m lucky to have so many friends running SeaWheeze this year who will no doubt help keep me motivated and on track. It’s going to be a journey for this girl who has never run more than 12km but man I’m looking forward to crossing the finish line of my first half.
Who else is running SeaWheeze this year?
What does your training look like?
