I restarted this plan today. I started with the second week of it, which starts at 2 minutes of running, and one minute of walking X 10. I want to complete this plan in ten weeks, b/c I want to do the Turkey Trot as my 5k before the half marathon. The half marathon training plan calls for a person who is comfortable running 12-15 miles a week and that needs to be me.
Everyday before midnight I do part of the 8-week running plan I have posted on my refrigerator. If something unavoidable comes up, while I’m training like using the restroom, whatever, that’s fine, so long as I made the concerted effort to be present prior to 12am. If I need to wait to advance to the next level in my running percentage, then I have to walk for the rest of the time, and do the training the next day, when I was supposed to be walking or on a rest day. This way I continue on with the plan. The downside is no walking or rest day, other than the one in which I don’t make the cut, but I don’t anticipate having many of these days, if at all, since I’m going to be taking rest days and walking days when scheduled.
