Yesterday I got Jeff Galloway's book, You Can Do It, in the mail! I'm so excited to start his training plan in a couple of weeks!
I browsed through the book yesterday. The run-walk method is a genius idea. I was always under the assumption that everyone that participated in races ran the entirething. On a good day I can go 4 miles without stopping, but then I feel like I want to fall over. So adding walks on purpose will definitely help. I’m very intrigued with the nutrition chapter. I like to say I have a pretty healthy diet, but I’ve been slacking a lot with that lately. I want to know how to fuel my body properly.
For the next couple of weeks I’m just going to continue running as I usually do. When I feel more comfortable I’ll start with his weekly training plan. I’ll start at week 6 or 7 because that’s the mileage I’m currently at. So in about 30 weeks I should be able to run 13.1 miles. Let’s hope this works.
