Training Schedule

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.

  3. 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!!

  5. 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!
