Corrected and Free (!) Half-Marathon: Finish It Plan

11th June 2012, By: dimity, Tags:

We can even help you finish a half marathon in just a sports bra with an avalanche chasing you. We're that good.

Sarah and I read proofs of Train Like a Mother: How to Get Across Any Finish Line – and Not Lose Your Family, Job, or Sanity about 8,000 times. Or at least it felt like that. After about the third time of taking a magnifying glass to the text, which we’d already read, edited, read, edited, read, edited many times, I think our eyes just glazed over. Either that, or she trusted I was eagle-eyeing the training plans–and I was doing the same.

The result? A few typos. (Yeah, I know: like that’s a huge surprise. And guess what? Sometimes we raise our voices at our kids, too.) The most notable ones were in the Half-Marathon: Finish It plan, so we wanted to make amends as soon as possible. We apologize if we threw any of you off; the mistakes weren’t huge, but were a little confusing.

Which is why we’re giving it to all of you, whether or not you bought Train Like a Mother: How to Get Across Any Finish Line – and Not Lose Your Family, Job, or Sanity, right here as a .pdf, which will open in a new window when you click on the link to you can download.

We figure one of two things:
1. If you own the book, you can print it out, staple it, fold it, and shove it in the back for when you’re ready to finish a half-marathon.

2. If you haven’t gone orange on us yet, maybe seeing this innovative plan for busy people and designed by coach extraordinaire Christine Hinton will tip you over the edge. (Look at the coffee cups! So cute! And look at how smart and doable this plan is! And there are fun workouts? What are those? I guess I’ll have to buy TLAM and find out!)

So consider this a random surprise for June 12th. Enjoy and happy Tuesday!

We’ve heard from some of you that have followed the plans, but are always open to feedback, improvements, and, of course, a compliment. If you have any stories or corrections or ideas, please feel free to pipe up in the comments below. Thanks!

    This plan fits perfectly for my Nov 24 Women’s Half – and I haven’t bagged any run yet!

    I’m in week 6 of this plan. I felt like a superstar running 8 miles on Saturday so comfortably. Stretching and Yoga are key for me to not feel achey. I am really enjoying this plan…thank you ladies!

    Thank you for this! I am putting on my calendar the Seattle Half on December 1st which is 19 weeks out so that gives me a few weeks to get re-read my TLAM highlights and get my running base up before officially starting the plan. Very excited :) Happy training!

  9. I highly recommend this plan! I used it this spring to train for my first half. I was able to stay sane throughout this whole plan (my family too!), and finished my first half marathon with a time of 01:48:00. Whoop!! Go BAMR!!

    Thanks! I have the book on Kindle, kind of hard to follow a training plan on that :)
