Hi everyone! Happy Friday!!
I wanted to share my goals and training plan for the Seashore Half Marathon this April.
I was really happy with the result of my first half marathon, but there are a few things I want to do differently this time around.
First, I would ideally like to run this half marathon in under two hours. I am not exactly sure how attainable that goal is though because I finished the last one in 2 hours and 27 minutes. There were other factors like extreme heat and humidity, so I’m hoping the weather will be better this time around.
Therefore, my attainable goal (hopefully) for this marathon is to run it in 2 hours and 10-15 minutes. My mega goal will still be to run it under two hours, but if this doesn’t happen I’ll understand!
To meet my goal of running faster I am using a slightly different training plan that incorporates speed work. I am also running all the way up to 12 miles this time. Last time I only ran up to 10, which was fine, but I’d rather not tack on 3.1 miles on race day!
