We took a long break from The Running Brothers because my new company, Welborn Social Media was keeping me extremely busy and my brother, Rocky has been busy as well.
A couple of weeks ago, we decided that this time we were going to train properly for a marathon. We asked our Twitter followers for the best free marathon training program and an overwhelming majority of people recommended Hal Higdon’s website – www.HalHigdon.com.
The program we chose was the Novice 2 program, an 18-week training program for the marathon. I plan on following the program as closely as I can to the actual program. My brother is also going to try and do the same.
Our schedule this week is to run:
- 3 miles on Tuesday
- 5 miles on Wednesday
- 3 miles on Thursday
- 8 miles on Saturday
The Los Angeles Marathon is on March 18 this year, the day I turn 31. This time around we are going to be much more diligent in our training and can’t wait to see what kind of results we can achieve.
