Hi there! I have gotten a couple requests to share my Paris Marathon training schedule so here it is! I’ll be training and running the marathon with a friend of mine so she has set up our miles and route for each Saturday. Yikes!!! I have never trained for a marathon before (although I ran the SF Marathon), so this is going to be extremely challenging. Along with our long Saturday training runs, I plan to run 3-4 miles about 2-3 times a week.
If you are in training mode, one of my biggest suggestions would be to find a running buddy. I would not be able to get through this training without a friend running with me, and pushing me along. I am an extremely motivated person, but 26 freaking miles, is much easier with someone by your side.
Also, here is the Half Marathon Training Schedule I have used in past races for those of you looking to run a half.
I am SO ready to step outside my comfort zone and accomplish something as exciting as a full marathon IN Paris. What a dream!!
Do you have a race coming up? Or would you take a leap and sign up for one?
