I know lots of you have scheduled your training sessions in Google Calendar and that sounds like a great idea but I have gone old-school and opted print a copy of Abi's plan with my expected start dates for each cycle in the first column.
It is early days, but the plan is working well, I love the flexibility of being able to choose from the remaining sessions in the current cycle depending on how I am feeling and how much time I have.
The strength training is new for me and still quite challenging, especially the burpees, I'm not sure I will ever be able to get from plank to standing in one fluid motion! My cross training is almost exclusively yoga practice, what are you all doing for your cross training?
I was talking to a running friend yesterday, he was saying how he never follows a plan and is quite erratic in his "training", but still manages to run HMs and marathons. Thinking about it, I realised that I need to have a goal to work towards (without it I might never get off the couch) and following a plan is giving me the confidence to believe I can actually complete a HM.
Thank you Abi - your super-flexible plan is making my HM aspirations a reality!
How are you all getting on, do you have any tips or insights to share?
