I kicked off MARATHON training on Monday evening with a nice 3-miler! Last night, I did Jillian Michaels’ “No More Trouble Zones” DVD for strength-training since I was too lazy to go to the gym.

You can do the clicking thing here to see my whole 19-week training plan, which I based on Hal Higdon’s Novice 1 marathon training plan.

I had to tweak a few things since I’m running my second half-marathon (!) during Week 7 and going on two trips during the training cycle (Vancouver, B.C., and NYC, woo-hoo!).

I really want to keep up with strength-training twice a week and actually cross-train on Sundays — I did NOT cross-train at all during half-marathon training.

I expressed interest in buying a road bike and possibly-maybe-kinda training for a triathlon as well (!!!), and Aaron’s response was this:

“Great! I can run with you and you can bike with me! And then we’ll both drown.”
