The problem with this is, that unless you have been blessed with an innate ability to run like the wind or be able to pick up a sport rather easily, you will not hit the ground running. Especially not with running!!
I’ve been following the novice training plan I found online and was able to modify it to my needs. Since I know I have 20ish weeks until the half marathon and most plans are 15 weeks long, I decided to repeat weeks 1-5 until I was running what the plan recommended (remember that I am not a talented runner, at all, so reaching the suggested weekly mile total is in itself a challenge worth surpassing.
Monday: No running since I have school until lateTuesday: 2.25 miles
Wednesday: 1.83 miles
Thursday: 1.95 miles
Friday: 1 .94 miles
Saturday: 2 miles, 2 miles walking
Total miles: 10 miles
Not bad if you ask me!
Goal for the week: reduce the amount of time I have to walk while out on a run. Right now I am able to run ¾ of a mile before I have to stop and walk a little( I then repeat the process).
