I just signed up for a Distance Training Program through PR Training Programs. Didn’t I just say that I’m going to take it easy this summer and focus on endurance and speed? I guess I can’t help myself – I just love to run!
I was really excited when I heard about the program yesterday because it’s the only one that I’ve found that does long runs on Sundays. They have a beginner’s marathon program. Even though I’ve run a half marathon, I still consider myself a beginner. Plus they have speed workouts on a local track every Wednesday. I guess I’m multi-tasking this way since I wanted to improve my half marathon time.
I’m also looking forward to the seminars/information on hydration & fueling during races, and other tips & tricks. I missed out on these with Team in Training because all of the events were on Saturdays.
I don’t have a specific marathon in mind. Maybe I’ll find one in November somewhere. I’m registered for the Marine Corps Marathon 10K in October, so the only other distances I will race in September and October are a 5K, 8K, or 10K.
I understand that this is a well attended program. I don’t run in large groups except at races and there are only 3 of us — Angie, Sedric and me — when we train on Tuesdays. This will be very different for me, but a lot of fun!
