First thing's first. I'm giving away my Hansons Marathon Method book! I have no more use for it as I don't think I will ever use this training plan again. It's in MINT condition.
This plan did not work for me, but it works for lots of people. If you are curious about it and want my copy, all you have to do is be the first to comment on my blog and say that you want it!
Besides that, all you have to do is be willing to email me the address you would like me to send the book to and I will stick it in the mail
Over the past couple weeks, I have been trying to figure out if there has been anything I gained by my training this summer. It's no secret that the Hansons training plan did not seem to help me at all. I kept waiting to get faster and stronger but those feelings never came.
But surely I have gained something from plugging away this summer, right?
The answer came to me while I was on the treadmill at Planet Fitness on Monday. As I ran an 8 minute mile pace effortlessly in the A/C, I realized the thing I am most proud about my running this summer is that 99.99999999% of my runs were done outside in the scorching heat and humidity. I believe I ran on the treadmill twice this summer and ran early in the morning once. The rest of my runs were done between 10am-2pm. PRIME HEAT/HUMIDITY TIME!
So I am proud that I acclimated and was able to run in the heat. I wasn't fast by any means, but my body was able to regulate it's temperature and I adapted in that aspect to the conditions.
Don't forget to be the first to comment if you want my Hansons book!
Did you embrace the heat this summer or soak up the a/c? A little of both?
