    Training Definitions
    Easy Days Easy workouts should be just that – 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. Don’t 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::

    Basically this plan has walking on Mondays and Thursdays, crosstraining (c/t) on Tuesdays and Fridays, rest on Wednesdays and Sundays, and long endurance walks on Saturdays. Anyone interested in a cleaner schedule in Excel format, feel free to pm me.

    Amanda, where are you doing your long walks? Maybe we could meet up!

    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
    it was so helpful
