Let It Begin... Again

Thank you all SO much for all of your kind words and support. You don't know how much it means to me hearing so many praises and thoughtful things (especially considering most of us have yet to meet in person!). As I said in my last post, I'm not going to let that cruel-hearted, uninformed person get me down!!
So, today I decided to formulate my next training program for the Disney Princess Half!! YAY!

I intend on starting next week (yea, I'm taking the full week to recover haha), which will give me 18 weeks to train. Not too shabby! What I did was kind of mesh 3 different types of training programs into one. I formulated my days based on my work/life schedule and what has worked for me in the past (mileage/minute wise). My main focus for this run is going to be endurance. I want to be able to run 5 miles without stopping for the Princess Half. That's my goal!

So, here is what I came up with to help me get to my goal:

What're your thoughts on this?
As always, I am open to questions/comments/concerns. :)

I think it is a good idea to mix and match to meet your own life. I think some of these plans forget that we actually do have other things going on, too!

Yours looks a lot like how I did my training for Princess, with 4 and 5 mile "short" runs, but come on - those still feel long, right??

Happy Training!

Definitely a good idea to adjust the schedule to meet your lifestyle needs so you don't get frustrated if you can't fit things in. Your schedule looks great to me. I am sure it will help you increase your endurance.

Good luck, I look forward to reading about your training! :)

I mix and match training plans too, as well as switch some days of the week. I think your long runs look solid, plus you are going into the Princess already knowing you can do it, because you have! I am jealous that you are doing it. My hubby is not really down with me racing at disney and "wasting" disney vacation and money by adding a race. Hmm. I wish I didn't have to convince him from this idea. I can't wait to hear your recap and see how you feel that day as a whole goes.

I'm a big fan of the mix and match because obviously you know your body best and what will work for you might not work for me and vice versa. Good luck with your training!
