running, anyone?

I posted this almost exactly one year ago…and today I put it to the test again.  It. was. hard.

I took the summer off from running, but now with the kids heading back to school, I’m ready to get back on a schedule.  In fact, I’m starting to train for a half-marathon on Thanksgiving Day and I thought it might be fun if any of you wanted to train along with me…virtually, of course.  Before you say to yourself, “this girl has lost her mind”….remember, there is strength in numbers!!

This is the schedule that I followed when I trained for my first one and it was very, shall we say, forgiving. It lays out a 4 day a week running schedule for the next 10 weeks.  Last time I trained, I only ran 3 out of 4 days a week and I was able to complete the training.  So from a time commitment point of view, it was not too bad.

We can check in on a weekly basis and post our progress throughout the training…..if you’re interested leave me a comment or email me at

Now go check for the next half-marathon in your area and get ready to run!!

    I’d love to hear about the schedule. I kicked it up again and told myself I need to run…more…every day.

    That sounds motivating. Is the program for people who are used to running?

    It couldn’t be far better. That’s brilliant! On a side note i am going thru divorce at the moment, cause my man seems to opt for to seek out happiness more by using mindless web pages like: Woman fingering a variety of Veggies directly into their own Crotch then sharing time with his better half (me) and his friends and family. Exactly what did manifest in our own marriage that it emerged that far?

    Hi! This is my first comment here so I just wanted to give a quick shout out and say I really enjoy reading through your articles. Can you recommend any other blogs/websites/forums that cover the same topics? Thanks a ton!

    Hi! This post could not be written any better! Reading this post reminds me of my previous room mate! He always kept chatting about this. I will forward this page to him. Fairly certain he will have a good read. Many thanks for sharing!

    Hey outstanding blog! Does running a blog similar to this take a massive amount work? I’ve virtually no understanding of coding but I had been hoping to start my own blog in the near future. Anyway, if you have any recommendations or techniques for new blog owners please share. I know this is off subject but I simply wanted to ask. Kudos!

    many thanks that was a very good entertaining page, lots of problems in the planet these days, and all we Sheeps do – is hunting what the superstars do, similar to Click to Watch Lost Celebrity in Seethru Dress, despite the fact that we rather should really aim on what is moving on in the entire world, it changes out to become a imprisonment world unless we begin fighthing to get our privileges back!
