In need of the perfect training plan for you? If you can't hire a coach, here's what you need to know to build your own training schedule.
With the start of a new year, many of us are diving in to a new training plan. It’s exciting and kind of terrifying all at the same time. How to choose? What plan will work? Should you take a couple plans and combine them? So many questions, right? I’ve recently started a new training plan and went through this whole process myself.
Here’s how I decided on a new training plan. Hopefully this might help a few of you as you think about what plan you would like to follow.
As for me, I’m looking to set a half marathon PR in the spring, so I ended up choosing to use a version of the Hanson’s Half Marathon plan. This is higher mileage than I’ve ever run for a half marathon, but I am convinced that this tough plan will help me reach my goals. You can read more about my training process over at my blog and even see the details of my plan.
How do you choose a new training plan?
