This week I begin a 18 week training program for the Bayshore Marathon. The Bayshore Marathon is a one day event that consists of a 10K (6.2 miles), Half Marathon (13.1 miles), and Full Marathon (26.2 miles). The marathon is an out and back course along the shores of the Grand Traverse Bay.
For this race I will be using Hal Higdon's Intermediate Training Program. This program consists of five training runs per week, with a range of 24 to 43 total miles each week. For my first marathon I trained using the Novice Training Program. Even though I was happy with the results, I chose the Intermediate Training Program because I wanted something more challenging.
