I’m so excited! This week marks my very first week of marathon training! This is when I will start experimenting with what snacks to bring on long runs and finding out what works best. This is also when I will start experimenting with different equipment. I cannot begin to explain how excited I am to begin on this journey!
Marathon Training: Week One
- Monday – 3 miles easy
- Tuesday – 5 miles hills
- Wednesday – Rest
- Thursday – 5 miles easy
- Friday – 3 miles easy
- Saturday – 9 miles Long slow distance
This week I am experimenting with a few different snacks to keep my energy up and I’ll also be bringing my camelbak along for hydration, and to get used to running with it on long runs. And of course, I will be bringing along my Garmin Forerunner 15 to keep up with my distance and time, AND because I will be running in intervals to help increase my speed.
I have been reading and preparing for months now for this. I’ve been slowly building up my endurance to be able to run long distances, and I am convinced that I am going to be able to finish this marathon, and I am hoping that I am going to rock my marathon.
I hope that you all will continue to follow me as I update you on my marathon training!
