It’s Half Marathon Training Kickoff week!

It’s TRAINING TIME!  Our 12 week half marathon training program begins TODAY!

Our Living Fit Columbus running group is going to be training for the Cap City Half Marathon this spring.   We have a few veterans and a couple first-timers.  If you want to join us for the training or just a Saturday run, check out our FB page and/or blog page for more info.

*Note, this schedule has been designed by LivingFit and is based on our previous running experience and a combination of various training plans over the years (LifeTime Fitness Run Club, Coach Turnbull, Hal Higdon, Runner’s World… the list goes on, I’ve tried so many!)   It is a beginner-intermediate, adjust based on your needs and fitness level*

Here is our week #1 schedule.

I’ll be posting some tips on Half Marathon training soon.

Rules for now. DO NOT OBSESS OVER THE SCHEDULE!  It is here to help guide you, but ultimately listen to your body, do what you can to follow this (or any) schedule, and don’t freak out if you miss one occasionally.  Remember, these are based on OUR experiences, not Golden Rules of Running You Must Follow.

Also drink lots of fluids and get plenty of rest and sleep.

That’s all for now, have a great week & hope to see you Saturday!
