The official WDW Marathon training plan created by Jeff Galloway starts today! You can find it here on the runDisney site.
With the training plan starting today, the marathon seems so real and so much closer.
*commence freak out*
My running is not where I was hoping it would be when I started training, but c'est la vie. Just means more motivation!
As I read over the plans on the runDisney website, there are three options for the marathon. I didn't fall into the beginning runners (folks who have been running for less than 6 months), yet I'm not an experienced runner looking for time improvement (those who have done a marathon before). Then I saw the third option- experienced runners looking to finish in the upright position. Hey! That's exactly me! My goal is just to finish, preferably without limping/hobbling/crawling across the finish line.
I'm a fan of running 3 times per week and this fits my usual schedule of two shorter weekday runs and one long weekend run. Depending how I feel, I'll thrown in a 4th run. But I'm not too keen on how the long runs drop to 6 or 7 miles every other week. My plan is to also only train up to 24-25 miles, but have more 20+ mile runs that what this plan has. I'll be roughly following this training plan until I adapt and modify it to my own personal taste.
