This was the Marathon Training Schedule I followed. It’s for people who have a solid base of running. I thought it was very doable because I hardly ever felt wiped out. It’s hard to eat moderately and to make healthy choices when you’re exercising a lot. However the rest days, short run days, and cross training days help keep you from feeling exhausted and binge-eating. I did not do a lot of strength and speed training while training for my marathon because I didn’t want to get too tired. But, I did a lot of yoga, abdominal work, and dance. Also, I made sure to include hill runs every week! Check out Hal Higdon’s website for more plans and advice. He has beginner, intermediate, and advanced plans!

Anyone interested in training for a race this year?!
