RUNNERS & WALKERS 2020 PLANNING: CONSIDER A HALF MARATHON PROGRAM THAT INCLUDES SHORTER DISTANCE RACES
HALF MARATHON WITH 'SAINTS DAYS' 5K AND 10K BEGINNER TRAINING PLANS will begin January 12. If one of your 2020 Resolutions is to run or walk a race, Earned Runs may be able to provide you with a daily training plan that begins in mid-January and takes you through the middle of May, when you would complete a half marathon. Prior to that effort you would also complete a 5K near the St. Valentine’s Day weekend in mid-February, and a 10K near the St. Patrick’s Day weekend in mid-March.
Each of the shorter distance ‘SAINTS DAYS’ races are intended to serve as ‘tune-up’ competitions for the half marathon. However, if you are not interested in the longer distance 13.1-mile race, you can use the plans to provide a daily training schedule through the winter. Spring begins in the third week of March, so you can go your own way after the St. Patrick’s Day event if you wish to stop following the plan at that time.
The helpful aspect of all Earned Runs training plans is that they are not exclusively focused on simply running or walking sessions but also
encourage mobility and strength work.
Check out the DRAFTS for the RUN and WALK 2020 plans, which will be on the RESOURCES page soon. Each plan has a PART 1 and PART 2 schedule. Perhaps you’ll want to use them to guide you toward accomplishing fitness goals for the year.

BRIDGE TO PHYSICAL SELF
Running, walking, and fitness activities enable us to experience our physical selves in a world mostly accessed through use of fingers on a mobile device.
EARNED RUNS is edited and authored by me, runner and founder. I began participating in road races before 5Ks were common. I've been a dietitian, practiced and taught clinical pathology, and been involved with research that utilized pathology. I am fascinated with understanding the origins of disease as well as health.
