LA Marathon Training Plan

As many of you know, I recently joined the running group, Sole Runners.  One of the races the Sole Runners are running towards is the LA Marathon, which I have decided to run as my first full!  Without further adieu, here is my Sole Runners training plan for the LA Marathon (only 18 weeks away!!!!!)


Note:  I'm very curious and excited because the plan is based on times, not mileage.  I think this will be beneficial for me in the sense that it's a little less daunting to go out and run for 2 hours as opposed to going out and running 10 miles without knowing how long it will take me (how will my legs feel? what's my mood? am i tired? etc.)
Training begins next week!!!!  Let's do this!


On another note, check out Early Morning Run's awesome giveaway today!  She has a Lululemon bag filled with tons of running goodies!

  3. I see you are doing the Disney World Half, we did it this year in the bitter cold, but it is a great race. Be sure to do the Disneyland Half as well so you can get your "Coast to Coast" medal...it's one of the nicest medals out there.

  4. nice schedule! How'd you do this table? Looks nice. Are you doing that half-marathon day after the 1hr Sat run, or instead of? (you can probably guess what I'd choose!) I think I may have to do my runs on Mon-Wed-Sat. We'll see.. LET'S DO THIS!! =)

  5. Yowza, look at all those 4+ hour runs! And if you can run 1:40hr right now, you'll be more than ready for the marathon in 18 weeks! That's awesome that you've got 2 half marathons on deck, too :) Get it, get it!

  7. I love running for time rather than mileage but towards the end, I have to run for mileage because I'm so slow that I'd never get in enough miles! Heh. Such is the life of a back of the packer.
