Do you not know that the runners in the stadium all run in the race, but only one wins the prize? Run so as to win. Every athlete exercises discipline in every way. They do it to win a perishable crown, but we an imperishable one. Thus I do not run aimlessly; I do not fight as if I were shadowboxing. No, I drive my body and train it, for fear that, after having preached to others, I myself should be disqualified. - 1 Cor 9:24-27

Finalized my training schedule

I'm finally happy with my training schedule.

With training plans from many different sources (Smart Coach, Hal Higdon, Run Like a Mother), I put together one just for me.  One of my goals this year is to remain injury free.  I focused on building up my mileage for the marathon slowly and having a recovery week every three weeks.  I'm more concerned with finishing injury free than time.  I will admit though that my pace does get me down some.  Need to stop comparing myself to others....

At the top of my blog, there's a new page with my training plan.


  1. Your plan looks great. I love having a plan. I think running has really helped me get better at planning in general. I have learned that if I schedule something in I can usually always find time to do it.

    How if I could just figure out how you do tabs. I can only figure out how to connect my top blog tabs to an actual post rather than just a page like you did. I guess I need to plan a time to figure this out :).

    Have a great day and stay warm. I just keep telling myself not too much longer and I'll be running in warmer weather!

  2. You are going to do great! I love your goal! :0)
