|Sonia - my pacer to a sub 2 hour half last year!|
|enlarge to see elevation|
Here is my "8 week half marathon plan so I can at least keep up with Sonia for the first half of the race" plan:
- Run 3x a week
- Incorporate one treadmill hill or interval workout per week
- One long run per week
- One fun 3-5 miler per week
Hopefully this won't be too hard, but I have to fit it in with my latest fitness obsession...boot camp at Riley Athletics. I won a free month awhile back at a Road Runner Adventure Run and have cashed it in for the month of December. The classes are about 30 minutes and incorporate lots of circuit work including strength and plyometric type moves. I think it is actually a great compliment to running, but I just have to figure out how to do them both for December at least.
And so you can all hold me accountable here is what next week will "hopefully" look like:
Week of December 10th - 8 weeks till Sedona Half Marathon!Monday - Boot camp
Tuesday - Treadmill hill workout - gotta find one to do!
Wednesday - Easy run plus boot camp
Thursday - Boot camp
Friday - REST
Saturday - Boot camp
Sunday - 6-7 mile long run

If any of my Seattle friends want to help hold me accountable come run with me!
Question: Have you ever run a race at elevation? Did you notice a difference? Sonia and I do plan on getting there the day before the race so hopefully we have time to acclimatize!
