However, I've added a new goal to my Princess Half Marathon that I'm running next week, and that is not only will I not die, I will also look like I am not dying. After all, we are Team Slow But Pretty. The latter is definitely harder than the former. So, it seems I'm going to have to do some kind of training. Here is my last minute 'get it done' training plan for when you only have a month or so to get your body into a state where it is capable of jogging 13.1 miles at a moderate pace.
|1||4 Miles||Rest||3 Miles Sauna||Rest||Bikram||6 Miles Warm Yoga||Bikram||13 Miles|
|2||Rest||Bikram||5 Miles||4 Miles||Bikram||7 Miles Sauna||Bikram||16 Miles|
|3||7 Miles||Rest||4 Miles||Rest||Rest||8 Miles Sauna||Rest||19 Miles|
|4||4 Miles||Bikram||6 Miles Sauna||3 Miles||Rest||9 Miles Sauna||Rest||22 Miles|
|5||3 Miles||Bikram||5 Miles Sauna||4 Miles||Rest||12 Miles Sauna||Rest||24 Miles|
|6||5 Miles||Bikram||6 Miles Sauna||4 Miles||Rest||10 Miles Sauna||Rest||25 Miles|
|7||4 Miles||Rest||Rest||Family 5K||Rest||Rest||Half Marathon||20 Miles|
You'll see I'm going a little crazy over the next couple weeks - this is because I'm going to go visit my parents and I have a bunch of yoga classes in their town that I need to use up before they expire. I ran my Nike Women's Half Marathon with hardly any training but after doing a 30 Day Birkam Challenge and it worked out wonderfully. Hopefully the Bikram will add an extra workout and simultaneously prepare me for the 70 degree difference between New York and Florida.
I think this is the closest I am going towards a New Years Resolution. If I actually follow this plan, it will be the most I've ever trained for a half marathon and I will feel like an Olympian afterwards. I'm also hoping I might lose a pound or two.
