I have now been training for 3 weeks. I started out with 20min runs and have worked up to 50min. I still have over 20 weeks to train for the Toronto Marathon, so I'm taking it slow so I don't injure myself. I am now coaching 20 people for the 1/2 marathon and 5 people for the Marathon on May 15th. There training starts on Monday. They will have a slow build up and once they are 12 weeks out they will start the hard training. The Marathon group will start there hard training 18 weeks out. We don't have a team name yet, but we will come up with one before we start racing.
I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas. I will update my blog after the holidays. That's when my hard training starts. I'm sure some of you will want to know how I'm training. I will be doing most of my training on the treadmill. I will post the speeds and inclines I'm running at every week. Right now I'm running at 5% incline at 7.5 speed. And my heart rate is around 135-140.
Christmas in the Air!
