Today, I made the executive decision to change my marathon training from Hal Higdon’s Novice 1 Program to the Novice 2 Program. The Difference? It’s a slight step up in difficulty from Novice 1 with a tad higher mileage.
Why did I change my program? Who knows. I figure if I’m crazy enough to do a marathon, I’m crazy enough to push myself a little harder.
Hal Higdon is apparently the god of running and running programs. The have an AWESOME iPhone app to help with your runs. My one complaint? I have a Droid! I’m bugging them on Twitter and their blog to create an Android version.
Questions for runners:
- What do you do for your cross training workout?
- During the marathon (exclude training from this q), do you walk the hills to save energy?
- What do you eat throughout the day that you find gives you energy for your long runs?
- How can you get your body used to running in the morning??
Lastly, I’m on dailymile. I have 2 friends, so feel free to add me.
