Training Definitions
Easy Days Easy workouts should be just that Ė easy. You should run and/or walk at a pace that allows you
to hold a conversation. The number is the number of miles that you need to run and/or walk.

Rest Days Rest is a very important part of the training program. You will not improve faster by substituting
additional runs in place of rest days.

Long Days A long workout is scheduled once each week. Run and/or walk at the pace at which you hope to
complete the half marathon. Just cover the distance. Donít worry about the time. Like the easy
workouts, stay conversational. The number is the number of miles that you need to run and/or
walk.

Thanks, Amanda! I really must become more consistent in my training and this looks like I could work it into my schedule.

Time to get serious! ::yes::

I am stressing this marathon..............
I have been off of WISH for a few weeks now and although, I am doing fine weight wise, I have not walked!
I have been looking through the marathon tread and realized so many folks have gotten so far this whole time I have been procrastinating..........
anyway, gonna follow this training plan if it kills me.thanks
