    I’m training for the P.F. Chang’s Rock ‘n’ Roll Arizona Marathon on Sunday, January 16, 2011 with Team in Training. Running a marathon is a life long goal for me, so raising money to support an organization like Team in Training is just icing on the cake!

    Please stop back from time-to-time to see my progress. I will link my blog posts to the appropriate training day below.

    I love this!! I am training for my first half marathon (also with TNT) and now that my long runs are increasing (10, 11, and 12 this week, eek!) I find I am really sore and it’s harder to fit in my weekday runs without hurting myself. Is that why you didn’t run as often during the week some weeks? I do other forms of exercise so this really made me feel better that you tackled your long runs consistently and still finished your marathon in amazing time!!

    @Jamie: Yea, towards the end, it was tough. I just didn’t want to get hurt before the big day, so I took it easy.

    Thanks for sharing this Tina. I just registered for my first marathon yesterday but have been looking for a good training plan the last week or so. I want a plan that has at least 2 days for cross training so I could maintain and build muscle through strength training but almost all the plans I come by have (almost) nothing but running or only 1 cross training day. Looking at your schedule and knowing you did the marathon, I feel that I can definitely work a schedule for myself that does what I need!
