Running TRAINING Programs!

Hal Higdon has well written PROGRAMS for many distances (5k, 10k, half marathon, marathon, and more!), as well as levels of skill: beginner, intermediate, and advanced.  

Really though, an advanced athlete could complete a "beginner" or novice training and find success. The level of difficulty often relates to the total mileage. In addition to running more miles, intensity increases with increase in pace, speed, number of repeats, etc.

Another great site for TRAINING tips, recommended training paces, and running calculator (to tell you what time you might expect at a race) is discussed HERE -- Wonder How Fast You'll Run?!

My kindergartner said "Mom, I bet this is your favorite homework ever!" 
...she also came up with the  "I like to run." all on her own, bless her heart :)

COMMENTS: Have you ever run a race? Have you started to participate in a new sport for the first time as an adult? I am thrilled for a friend of mine who is really enjoying tennis -- it's all new to her! So fun and exciting!
