Fall weather has arrived in Georgia in a hurry. Chill in the air, and I love it! We’ll talk more about fall running later.
People that have surprised me this week: my mom. Now, all Norak wants to do is talk running. I am wondering who has replaced my mother?! It’s awesome being able to talk to someone about running and help them train. In my next life, I want to do something with sports.
Norak is on bored for her February Disney Princess Half Marathon and she’s asking questions daily on how she can get ready for her first half marathon. I can relate to her newbie feelings and I am thrilled to get her started. I thought I would share with y’all how we are taking the training and preparation one step at a time.
– Secure a training plan
– Get new shoes
– Talk time and distance
– Discuss nutrition
I am working with my trusty Runner’s World SmartCoach tool to build out Norak’s training plan based on her needs (how many miles a week, time goal, intensity, etc.). Norak threw a curve and is actually following Jeff Galloway’s coaching strategy created “For Beginning Runners
(those who have been running consistently for less than 6 months).” I am all for whatever gets her motivated and moving!
Next up will be taking her to my neighborhood running store for her proper shoe fitting. Like a kid in a candy shop!
