Yesterday I finally took a few minutes to figure out what my half marathon training plan is going to be this time around. Just in time too because my training officially started today with 3 miles this morning.
I ended up meshing two plans together. I used Hal Higdon’s Novice 2 plan for the mileage and I used the Finish It plan from Train Like a Mother (by Sarah Bowen Shea and Dimity McDowell) to add in strides and speed work.
I’m pretty excited about this plan but I’m nervous about it too. The strides (up to 10 at the end) and the speed work will be tough. While postpartum running has been difficult, I’m ready to really get back into running and this plan will help me.
