A few weeks ago I ran my first half marathon.
Since then I’ve been on a mile a day challenge.
Here is my race schedule for the year (I’ll keep updating it).
For my happy girl half I trained my way.
I made my own 12 week training program. And followed it by my lonesome.
And with the support of my blog friends. Both training and observing
I’m seriously considering joining a training program at the local running store.
I think this will
1. Make running new and exciting for me.
2. Motivate me to stick to my schedule.
3. Help me reach my goal of a sub 2 hour half marathon.
4. Be a healthy social outlet + new running buddies.
5. Figure out this “foam rolling” thing.
ALL awesome reasons.
I’ve been skeptical of people with running “coaches” and this would be a “coach” but for me it would be motivation and learning. Fun, not work.
I think work when I think “coaches”.
Gallaghers is where I’ve been fitted for my shoes and where I bought my Garmin. They have always been extremely helpful and informative.
Not to mention I bought my awesome super colorful shorts from them (see blog heading pictures).
What do you think of “coaches”?
Does that make me too serious of a runner? I don’t want to lose the fun in running. But I think I’ll improve more with better support.
How much support do you get with your running?
