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.
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
