Seriously, I am going to run a half marathon. I never thought i could ever do anything like this. I am super nervous but so ready to start training. This is pretty much what my schedule will look like for the next 2 months.. Fun stuff.. NOT. I kid.. This will be an adventure.
The half-marathon schedule
Toughie No. 1: Three 10-minute intervals at 10-K pace, with 5- minute recoveries
Toughie No. 2: Three miles at PHMP
Toughie No. 3: A 5-K race or time trial
Toughie No. 1: Four 6-minute intervals at 10-K pace, with 1- to 2-minute recoveries
Toughie No. 2: Four miles at PHMP
Toughie No. 1: 3.5 continuous miles at LTRV (10 to 12 seconds per mile slower than your current 10-K PB)
Toughie No. 2: Repeat 800s at a pace which is 6 seconds per 800 faster than current 5-K pace
Toughie No. 3: Six miles at PHMP
Toughie No. 1: 10-K fartlek session (alternate 2- to 3-minute bursts at 10-K speed with one minute or so of easy jogging over a 10-K distance)
Toughie No. 2: Seven miles at PHMP
Toughie No. 1: Moderate hill session (on a tough, steep hill, do six or more repeats, but not enough repetitions to induce soreness)
Toughie No. 2: Three 10-minute intervals at 10-K pace, with 5-minute recoveries
Toughie No. 3: 5-K race or time trial
Toughie No. 1: Nine miles at PHMP (early in the week)
Toughie No. 2: 5-minute intervals at 5-K pace, with 3- to 5-minute recoveries. Leave the workout feeling fresh and charged-up, not mentally and physically drained.

For any of you who know me, know that i love Banksy! I think he is so amazing and talented! He is here in Utah during the Sundance film festival. He was at the Java Cow and shared his talents with the rest of us :) I have to get up there and take this picture myself!!! I heard the owner of the Java Cow is going to paint over his work after Sundance is over. If she does, she is lame! DON'T TOUCH IT!!!!!
