Training for Half Marathon

I may be biting off more than I can chew, but I think I’m going to be using Hal Higdon’s Half Marathon Training Schedule: Intermediate 1.

I used Hal Higdon’s plan for the Nike race back in 2015 and it worked well for me since it’s very accommodating to non-competitive runners like me, and it leaves some room for rock climbing.

Of course, I haven’t exactly run high mileages for a long time, so this could be a plan doomed to fail!

The biggest concern I have now is that I have a lot more things on the go, compared to my life pre-accident. Work sometimes has me working in the evenings or part of the weekends, and I’m making more of an effort to see friends and family, who are more often available during the evenings.

Idea: Start run commuting! It’s about 7.4km from my house to my office, so I could use up half my weekly runs by running to the office and taking a shower at the nearby gym.

Of course, this means that I would have to switch memberships to take advantage of those showers, so this means I’ll have to make sure that I’m not going to be paying extraordinary fees…

We’ll see what happens!
