Preparation for First Marathon (Read 255 times)


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
