    My fave plan is… No plan. I’ve never really followed a plan for training

    I followed a 10 week training plan for my first half marathon and really liked the gradual progression of long runs. I will probably follow something similar for my next race but incorporate more speed work during the week to shave some minutes off my time.

    I was wondering about Seattle! Well, if you decide you do want to run a gorgeous marathon out there you should join me at Bellingham Bay Marathon in September! I feel like a lot of people push themselves far past the point something stops being fun, so it’s really great that you can recognize and make decisions based on whether you’re enjoying your workouts.

    I don’t really follow a plan just go with how I am feeling that day. I do run 4 days a week but when I feel like running those 4 days! 🙂

    good for you for taking that much needed break from the stressors of running. i definitely understand what you are saying… i was feeling that way this fall…i didn twant to run but i forced it. i had already signed up for the baltimore marathon and ran it anyway. and did awful…almost an hour off my pr lol. i took some time off and then ran the nyc half this march and did great and got my love back 🙂

    i love hal higdon plans…he is a god.

    Hi there…my first time commenting but I’ve been following your blog for awhile 🙂

    I’m a casual runner, I’ve done several 10Ks and can run 60 mins steady, but other than that haven’t done anything fancy.

    I’m signed up to run my first half on Oct 19 and starting to think about what kind of training plan I need… would you suggest this one for someone doing their first half, or should I start “officially” training more than 6 weeks out?

    I already work out 6 days a week, alternating strength training, intense cardio classs, yoga, and running. I figured I’d just need to add one long run per week and maybe not even follow a plan…

    Cheers!

      This plan is for the casual runner, so someone who already runs 10-15 miles a week with a long run of 4 miles during the week. I would say build your base up to that point, then start the 6 week plan.

    Thank you for posting this!!! I AM there right now. I want running to stay fun. I recently did a METRIC half marathon that was amazing. 8ish miles at a 8:40 pace. Now THAT is fun!

    I have never really followed a true plan, I should probably try that…

    Do you go running alone in the morning when it’s still dark? I’m so scared to…what are you thoughts…

    I like that plan, but the word “jog” just irks me like “moist” does to a lot of people. Blech.

    My go-to for all distances in running is always Hal Higdon. So simple.

    This plan looks like something I could actually do! I am going to give it a shot. I typically don’t follow any plan, and just adapt to how my body is feeling. I think following a plan will make me push harder though and reach new goals. Thanks!
