I was running for two hours this morning. I am training myself for a half-Marathon (13.1 miles) race which will take place in early December. This will be my second H.M. race. I am not going to compete against other runners but myself of yesterday.
On September 30, I signed up to paricipate the event and have been following my training plan since then. Here is the training plan:
Sunday: Long run for 1.5 - 2 hours or at least 9 miles
Monday: Recovering run (3 to 4 miles, slow)
Tuesday: Rest (no runing)
Wednsday and Thursday: Intensive run (4 miles each, with some element of speed/hill/tempo)
Friday: Recovering run (3-4 miles, slow)
Saturday: Rest (no running)
I will stick to this plan until the end of November.
