I currently work from home about 25-30 hours/week. I am also studying to be a personal trainer. And have a lot more free time during the day. I will be running my first half marathon on April 6, 2013. It's the High Speed Pursuit Half at the Prison. The race is in Kuna which has a desert terrain. The course circles the prison yard and water tower, sounds kind of dangerous if you ask me. It's not a point to point race so the first few miles are uphill, while the last few miles are uphill : (. Oh wait, I live in the hills, should be cake to train for this ; ). Here's the link if anyone else is interested in running it too!
I found this 12 week training program that I tweaked a little bit. I added a few cross train/strength training days in between my running days, and Sundays will be rest days. A couple weeks from now instead of having two medium length runs/week, I'm going to add a hill workout in there. The hill in this race isn't that bad but I'm also going to try and get a bib for Robie Creek this year, which is just two weeks after the prison run. Aren't I ambitious!! I'm not going to share the link for Robie, only because I will be sad if you get a bib and I dont, or if I get a bib and you don't. Just KIDDING, here it is: Robie Creek
Here's what Week 1 looked like:
