My goals also entail running my first half and full marathons next year, distances my body has never known all at one time. Obviously, I plan on implementing a specific training schedule to prepare for these races, but which one?
I've recently been on a running information kick and just finished my fifth book on running in the last couple of months. The latest book, Runner's World Run Less, Run Faster: Become a Faster, Stronger Runner with the Revolutionary FIRST Training Program by Bill Pierce, Scott Murr, and Ray Moss, has me intrigued.
The FIRST program would fit well into my schedule and I already want to incorporate cross-training, particularly over the winter months. My only concern with this plan is being able to follow the pacing to a T. For the most part I know where all the half-mile and mile marks are on the various runs around my house, but I only run with a Timex I can imagine keeping on the correct pace might be difficult. I imagine this baby is in my near future...my birthday is in October...
