Womens half marathon training plan
Half-Marathon: A Complete Guide for Women by Jeff GallowayAlthough Id been exercising for several years (through a 40 lb weight loss) I never really considered running. To be fair I was a terrible, slow runner all through school. Even though I did a ton of aerobics in the 80s and was a body builder for a couple of years running always felt out of my reach. Instead I turned to stationary cycling, elliptical training, and walking. However I always had this bucket list item that was run a 10K. At the time I said that (many years ago) I think it was a pipe dream - akin to saying star in a Hollywood blockbuster LOL.
It wasnt until my brother in law started training for a marathon I ever really considered running and making good on the long ago goal. Though the BIL is an athlete and always has been the fact that someone close to me was running made me consider it. Im very goal oriented so off I went to buy an app and do a C25K program (the app was Get Running and it was awesome!).
Like everything else in my life I am always all in. So as I neared the finish of the 5K and ran a couple races I started thinking about more. However some nagging issues with my calves surfaced again after nearly 30 years and I could see the straight running dream of my 10K disappear in front of my eyes. Then I heard about Galloway - so this is the first book I picked up. It was very good - very thorough and has a lot of good info. I really enjoy the format of the book - the way the chapter are laid out. The training plans make sense (though I do wonder about the conflict here with increasing mileage and the 10% rule since the training here seems to violate that 10% rule I keep hearing from everyone). I didnt necessarily think the womens parts were that amazing - but the info was good.
Because Im obsessive I also went and got Galloways Book on Running and his Marathon: You Can Do It! and I REALLY like the latter the best of all the books. It feels ultra complete, is written in a great style, and covers nearly everything you can think of (Ill edit my review when hindsight is upon me). For some reason that book is much more motivating to me. Though the content is largely duplicative somehow it makes me feel like I want to go out and run a marathon and this book here just feels like more research. Its a great book - Id just recommend the other book more.
