This is pretty cool. Its an awesome way to see if any modifications should me made to your training. I would like to do something similar (if you don’t mind the total swagger jack) , I was keeping track on daily mile but that’s just another thing to update.

Wow! You are doing awesome. Im starting my training for a my first full marathon and I think im also going to log it. It very inspirational!


5 Alyssa March 9, 2011 at 4:39 pm

thanks, girl! :) it DEFINITELY helps me see where my training is lagging. and I feel way more of a need to accomplish something if I have to log it!

Wow, great training schedule! I’m currently getting ready for my first half (in Missoula, MT this summer, where my sister lives–I’m running in honor of her wedding the next week) and I’m really enjoying the prep so far.

Any tips for a first-timer?


7 Alyssa March 26, 2011 at 4:45 am

totally! I’d love to help. :) my biggest piece of advice for a first timer would be to focus on speed and distance separately. on your long run days, don’t worry about how fast you run. and for speedwork, keep it short! I definitely recommend interval training to work on your speed.

please don’t hesitate to contact me with more questions/advice! :)

Thanks so much! I’m definitely focusing mainly on finishing since I took quite a long break from running (I spent a lot of 2010 sick and unable to exercise), but would love to finish in a reasonable time, lol ;)
I’ve been running my long runs at whatever pace felt most comfortable, but I haven’t tried any interval training. Sounds like a great idea!

Do you have a marathon training plan? I’m thinking about doing my first marathon in October as well and have kinda started training (still have a half marathon base built up), but I was just wondering what other bloggers have used/are using for marathon plans.


10 Alyssa June 15, 2011 at 6:17 pm

I’m actually kind of creating my own. I couldn’t find just ONE I loved that fitted my schedule perfectly, so I’ve pulled about 15 from the ‘net and have been composing my own. let me know if you want the finished product once I figure out what I’m doing! :)

Hi Alyssa! This is my first time checking out your blog, but I really like looking through your training schedule! I’m trying to train for a half marathon right now, but I just started running for the first time in my life a couple of months ago. So I’m excited to see if I can get some tips from your blog! Take care! Kristen :)

I just stumbled upon your blog and I think its great that you are doing the Marine Corps Marathon! I ran the Marine Corps Historic Half in May (my first) because my then boyfriend, now fiance is a Marine stationed in Quantico! So, good luck with training and the run! OORAH!


15 Vicky September 16, 2011 at 4:57 pm
