>Running 101>Preparation for First Marathon
Follower of Forrest
I'm also prepping first time for a marathon using Hanson's. It seems to me that the key to the Hanson's plan is being able to balance the key workouts with the easy runs. What I mean is, you can probably do the intervals, the MP run, and the long run individually, but it is tough to put it all together. For this reason, I would recommend working the intervals, MP run, and long run into your schedule slowly...and start following the pattern of the plan now.
4/5 - Lost Brook Trail 10mi 1:15:42
4/27 - Ironmaster's Challenge 50k
6/21 - Manitou's Revenge 56mi
