We are organizing a loose group of social runners to do the Frisco half marathon in April - if you have ever wanted to run a half marathon, this is your chance!
Whatever your fitness level - and I am not kidding - anyone can do this if you put in the work (and its not that hard)! There is plenty of time to get ready, even if you're a walker!
I am not a professional trainer, but I have run a few marathons and have taken running classes at Lukes, so I am happy to help with any training advice. I will provide a training schedule for different levels of runners as well as create run maps for the Saturday long runs and coordinate the post run breakfasts!
Kids are welcome to train for the 5K - my daughters (8 and 10) will be running (and complaining).
The link to the Frisco half is http://runtexasbigstar.com/
and I have created a team named Happy Trails
Hope you are up for it!
Texas Big Star Half Marathon & 5k Each year in April in Frisco, Texas. Presented by the North Texas Community Giving Foundation, in partnership with The Tug McGraw Foundation runtexasbigstar.com
I am going to use Hal Higdons mileage for this. Its a pretty straight forward training plan.
One thing that I do is make my long runs on Saturday and then have Sunday as a full day of rest. When the runs get long (and they wont really until the end), I also rest Friday.
I will start having the Saturday morning runs on January 14th. I will be at the cul de sac driveway in the back of Fisher Elementary (by the basketball nets) at 7:00 AM. As I have no idea on how many (LOL or any) people are going to show up, I will head out soon after.
I will draw up the weekly course and post it here...

Independent training starts on Monday, January 9th and the group runs on Saturday, January 14th.
Beginner - 2-3 miles on Mon, Tues, Wed and Thurs and rest Friday. Focus on minimizing walking time by controlling your pace. Make sure to start SLOW! if you need to walk, who cares, just try to control your pace so you maximize your run time.
Intermediate - 3 miles on Mon, Wed and Thurs. Cross train for 40 minutes on Tuesday and rest Friday.
On Saturday, we need to do a total of 5ish
First, we will do a 1.15 Mile loop for the kids
And then a 4 mile loop
