Schedule for Success
Welcome to the start of Cap City Half Marathon, Patron Quarter Marathon, and Commit to be Fit 5k training for 2016. This year we will be running, walking, and racing alongside the country’s best elite half marathoners in the USA Half Marathon Championships! We are 15 weeks away from the best tour of Columbus on two feet, now we just have to train for it.
Whether this is your first race or your 100th, make yourself and your training a priority. The best thing you can do for yourself in these first few weeks of training is to schedule your workouts. Write them down or put them in your online calendar. Block out the training time at the beginning of the week. Tell your family, friends, and coworkers about your goals and the times you will be out getting your miles done. Not only will that give them a heads up about when you will be away, but it will also help keep you accountable.
What time of day you run doesn’t matter, just do it when it works best for you. Some like to start the day off with a run or walk to set their day up right. Others, like me, use training as a way to rid themselves of the stress of the day and work out in the evening. No matter when you want to train, find a time that you will commit to and write it down. Establishing a habit is the goal of the first few weeks of training. Remember to keep it fun! We are so excited to share in your success this season.
