Happy Monday! Today I am sharing my half marathon training plan. Training has been taking up such a huge part of my life recently {I just finished my 19 mile week!} that I thought I would give you a glimpse of the daily schedule! I only have time for three runs per week, while cross training is recommended for Tuesdays and Thursdays. In my past two years running in this race, I have found this plan to work perfectly with the rest of my life! This will be my third time running the half and I'm hoping for my best time yet. Someday, I would love to run a full marathon, but I will need a lot more time to make that happen! 

The weather took an amazing turn this weekend and we took full advantage of it! With the high close to 60 degrees yesterday, it was such a nice change from the 14 degree weather we were experiencing last weekend. And you can see the snow has finally melted!


Ella wanted to get in on the training action this weekend...she makes a pretty good sprint partner! She may not be able to do the long distance, but those little legs love to spring {just one or two of them though ;) } 

Here is the training schedule I have adapted to fit my life. Everyone is different so I can't say this will work for anyone else, but it's important to find a plan that works for you since you will be the one doing it!

  1. Good luck! I've run 10+ half marathons in the past 5 years and I love the distance. I finally got my husband to run one last fall and he had a great time. We're currently training to run Shamrock next month and it's going to be such a great weekend.

  4. Hello Rachel, I first want to say that I am super proud of you for taking such challenge and the fact that you have already done it twice makes it more inspiring. Good luck with your training and I am sure you will do great. You go girl! I am here in Orlando rooting for you:-) Your Ella is super cute. I have four doggies myself (Lola, Chloe, Sophie and Zeus).
