Training Board Time

It’s finally time that I start thinking about my marathon training plan for the Philadelphia Marathon in November.  For my past two marathons, I created my own hodge-podge of a training plan (I did my own research and created a plan that seemed suitable to a.) finishing my first marathon and b.) improving my first marathon’s time.  To that end I succeeded in meeting those goals, but this time I am feeling a bit more in need of using a plan developed by the experts.  I’m considering purchasing one that will help me train with a goal of qualifying for Boston.  This is a long-shot for me (need to shave 25 minutes off my time) but one that I’d like to attempt for I think a tried-and-true plan is one that may help me to be more disciplined knowing that putting the time in will yield desired results. 

Have you purchased a training plan and what were your thoughts?


About mileoneandcounting

I'm a young professional living in the Washington, DC area. Since moving here in 2007 I have honed a passion for running and fitness. Growing up I played soccer and softball (and tested track & field for one year). After college I ran a few 5K races, but running was really only a means to staying in shape for me. Never in my wildest imagination had I thought I'd ever run a marathon, let alone three. Nor did I think I'd get the running bug after doing so, but I'll admit I'm hooked! Over the years my blog has grown into so much more than a running blog though. Sometimes I have deep thoughts. Other times I'm simply sharing a training story or a review of a product. Here's the place where you'll learn about me through my many adventures--even I enjoy going back to re-read some posts from time to time. I've also been able to hone my love for health and wellness through my business called IDLife which stands for Individually Designed Life. I'd love to help inspire you to live your best life yet so please don't hesitate to reach out to me and may my words resonate with you. See you on the trails...

    I’ve never purchased a training plan, but I can see why it would be valuable (mentally as well as physically.) Like you said, it’s good to know that this is a tried and true plan, and if you do what it tells you, you’ll see results. Which one are you looking at?
