TBR Dream Marathon Training: Week 1

TBR Dream Marathon
Week 1 Training
Oct 18-24, 2010

Week 1 training is all about walking.  As Coach Jim Lafferty wrote, "we must ask your body, in GRADUAL INCREMENTS, to do more than it has done before, such that in the 48 hours post-exercise the body will undergo changes on a cellular level so that next time you can do it better." I really have to follow this training plan if I want to finish the full marathon.

TBR Dream Marathon Training: Day 1

Week 1, Day 1

Today marks the start of my training for the TBR Dream Marathon on March 20, 2011.  It's a 22 week program designed by Coach Jim Lafferty, a former and present-day Marathon coach.   Retired P&G General Manager, finisher of 23 marathons, coach of multiple US national team members, and TBR Dream Marathon’s race director. Week 1 will start with just brisk walking to ease us into running so I just had a brisk walk for 30 minutes.  Well, it felt good as this is the start of a new milestone in my life.
