I broke each day of the week down like this:

Sunday: Rest day/Yoga or strength training

Monday: MP = Marathon Pace run

Tuesday: Hills or Speed work

Wednesday: Easy run

Thursday: Rest day/Strength

Friday: Easy run

Saturday: Long Run

I change my training programs around as I go along depending on how I feel. I totally believe you should listen to your body and pull back when you feel run down (no pun intended), overall fatigue or an injury coming on. So, I may skip a day here and there, or change up a hard run to an easier one icon smile Disney World Marathon Training I hate speed work, so this program is challeging in that I am trying to do hills or speed every week.

For my first marathon training I began to get tendonitis in my foot about 2/3 of the way through the program. I immediately cut my running from 5 days to 4 days a week.

*I am going out of town for a week in September and I did include that in the training plan. I usually get pretty stressed when I miss training for a race, but I am not going to worry about it this time. It is a much needed break!

**Also, this training program is during Thanksgiving, Christmas and other life events so it may be necessary to move runs around to change it up in general. I will be updating my plan as we go along!

Instead I just have a blank excel sheet and I fill it in at the end of each day and I kind of just have a goal total mileage for the week’s end. Doing it this way for me has actually helped me increase my physical activity but I never feel pressured to run when I don’t want to
