Holy Preplanning, Batman!

Technically, if I follow a Hal Higdon Marathon training plan for the Marine Corps Marathon (which is my current plan), I don’t actually have to start training until the first week of July. Which means, I don’t have to start writing that plan up, type-A style until like June, right?

WRONG.

I have found like…SIX races (AT LEAST) that I want to do this summer/fall. Which basically means I’m entering all of my runs into my Google Calendar now. So I know if I can fit these races into my training. 

There are times when I really do wonder about the person that running has made me.

  5. cupcakeconditioning said: LOL - last week I input my MCM training plan into my Google calendar, and I don’t start training until July either….
  6. runningwithpump said: My November marathon training has planned for weeks. I think I enjoy the planning way more than the running sometimes.
