Shaking up my training

The other day I mentioned that I felt like I needed to shake up my training plan but wasn’t sure exactly what that meant yet. So I spent a little time this weekend looking back over my plan for RnR USA and plans from Runner’s World Smart Coach and Hal Higdon – hoping to cobble something together, to find something to push me out of my comfort zone a bit.

Then this showed up in my mailbox!

My copy of Train Like a Mother: How to Get Across Any Finish Line – and Not Lose Your Family, Job, or Sanity

I have been eagerly waiting for this book! I so enjoyed Run Like a Mother  – you can read my review here – and have no doubt I’ll love this one as well! (Going to start reading it as soon as I’m done with this post!)

I immediately flipped through to the Half Marathon “Own It” training plan and it seemed to be just what I was looking for  – a solid mix of speedwork, hills, cross-training, tempo and long runs. I’ll be modifying the plan just slightly to account for the fact that it’s a 13 week plan and I have just 9 weeks til Boston’s Run to Remember. But, otherwise, I’m all in!

I’m excited about this plan and can’t wait to see what comes of it.



  1. I’m like giddy waiting for my copy to come!!! You are so going to OWN IT!!! You have plenty of time because your fitness is up there already!!

  2. Nice, gonna to check out your review. I have so many running books on my list! Ericka @ The Sweet Life

  3. I only ever get in 3-4 runs a week so I’m a big fan of plans that focus on quality runs. Let us know what you think of the book!

  4. So much fun to try something new. Sounds like you found your perfect fit.

  5. That’s another book on my list to read!

  6. Yay! Halfway through the book, myself!

  7. I can’t wait for my copy to get here!!! YAY!

  8. i was actually thinking of doing that plan too!! it seems doable if my body agrees 🙂
