Fort Worth Half Marathon 2014

After some contemplation, I registered for the

Fort Worth Half Marathon 2014

 on November 9th. I have done 2 half marathons in the past with unstructured training and I definitely could have paid more attention to my nutrition. So for this half, I want to follow a routine in order to do better with my timing, focus on nourishing my body better, and strictly stick to the training program for the next 14 weeks! I will be using my blog as a platform to keep me accountable and share my journey every week. Moving forward, there will still be Monday/Wednesday posts with recipes but Friday, expect race talks, pre/post workout snacks, and everything in between that relates to the race. 

I am following Beginners 12-weeks training plan from


 but I am all ears for other training plans that have worked for you guys.



Hal Higdon's Novice 1 Program

 which I am considering as well.  

Week 1 :

For stretch/strength - I did 30-Minute Cardio Ballet Workout and Full Body Stretching.Runs - I have been sticking with the schedule but didn't pay attention to my timing. However, from next week I will use the RunKeeper app to keep track of my progress. Nutrition - Since I run after dinner, I normally don't snack before the run. Post run - apple slices with peanut butter and plenty of water.  

That's all for today.. Have a wonderful weekend! Do you have a recommendation for any half marathon training program?
