Hal Higdon’s Half Marathon Novice Training Guide

I am newly minted 30-year-old now preparing to run her first half marathon.  I am not a former high school athlete nor a  former college athlete, but I am dedicated to being an active person for my entire life. I want to keep this one body fit and able to serve me as long as possible.  The furthest I’ve ever jogged previously is 7 miles in the Chuckanut Footrace in Bellingham last July. 13.1 miles presents a big challenge to me.  Unfortunately to date my training has been all mental not physical and as we all know mentally training to run 13.1 miles will not get you to the finish line.  I’ve told friends, family, and co-workers I am going to finish this race, but I still haven’t run a mile in preparation.  Now with less than 15 weeks to train it’s time to find my inner Rocky or face the embarrassment!  Thanks to teammate Megan I’ve found a training plan to use from Hal Higdon. Tomorrow I will begin with the scheduled Tuesday week one 3 mile run.
