Week one of training for the Chicago Marathon was a success! I have been waiting to officially kick off training and it feels great to be back at it with a goal in mind. For training, I'm following Hal Higdon's Novice 2 18-Week Training Program. I feel like it's the right fit!
This time around for my second marathon, I really want to stay on top of cross training. Let's be honest....I barely focused on cross training for my first marathon. The goal was to go the distance and cover the miles. Now that I have gone the distance, I need some cross training in my life. I decided to sign up for a boot camp that I did a few years ago.
Here's how week one of training went:
Monday: Boot Camp
Tuesday: 3 Miles
Wednesday: 5 Miles, Boot Camp
Thursday: 3 Miles
Friday: 8 Miles
Weekly Mileage: 19 Miles
Week one done. Seventeen more to go. Hopefully you'll stick around and keep up with my training! You can follow along with my training on Daily Mile. Are you training for anything? I'd love to keep up with your training too!
