Guess what came in the mail today?! The award for my 3rd place age group finish at this year’s Scheels Turkey Trot! Last year I grabbed second place, but this year I was so happy with 3rd place as I moved up an age bracket (to 21-30) and shaved an alleged four minutes off my time. And yes, I know that some people said the course was short, but can we just pretend it was accurate?
Another hand-me-down outfit; but come on now…she’s ready for the holidays!
Yesterday I mentioned that I’m working on my Boston marathon training plan, but the more I keep reading and Googling, the more I get confused on what I should do. I question successful plans that I have used in the past only because I can and I get worried about ensuring I have the right type of training mixed in (i.e. cross training, strength, yoga, core, etc). I don’t have a coach (although I would love to if any coaches out there are willing to take it on) and I can only bother my blogging buddies so much for advice. I was planning on doing a variation of the classic Pfitz plans, but I would love to ask for your help.
What training plans do you love? Anything specific for Boston training?
Any and all advice is welcome!
