I love a good training plan, but sometimes I need to make my own in order to accomplish the goals I am trying to reach! This time around…I’ve set my sights on a half marathon. BUT…the one thing that’s missing from most training plans is STRENGTH training!
I LOVE to lift, because I love how I feel, and how my body looks with lean muscle mass. Too much running, and not enough lifting, and my legs turn into little toothpicks. I also love that lifting weights turns my body into a calorie-torching machine! Ya, I burn some calories when I run. But if that’s ALL I do, my body adapts and actually starts holding on to extra calories to fuel those long runs. When I lift, I get the benefit of the ‘after-burn’! I keep burning calories even after my workout is done! BOOM!
So…with my half marathon about 2 months away, I’ve been working with a schedule that allows me to do both! I always start with the basic Hal Higdon plan, and then modify in order to fit in the strength training that I want to do each week!
