I could use some aid from my fellow runner bloggers.
I'm not uncomfortable with mapping out training plans. I've run 7 marathons and 12 half marathons, so I've created a few training plans in my time.
However, as I sat down today to start working on my plan for the rest of the year, I got a little exasperated.
Here's the deal: in September, I'm running a half just for fun. In October, I'm running a half that I'd like to PR at since it's flat. In November, I'm running an incredibly hilly marathon just for fun (and when I say fun, I mean that I don't care about my time). In January, I'm doing the Disney Goofy Challeneg where I'll run the half and the full marathon. This is the ultimate goal, and I need my training plan to take me from today, through the other races, and through those two.
So here's the thing... I feel like I can't just use a standard marathon plan. Has anyone out there ever trained for the Goofy and want to share with me what you did?
In addition, how do I train for that even that will culminate at the end of the next 5 months of training while also training for the other marathon and half marathons that happen leading up to it? I want to make my goals of a half PR and surviving the other just for fun races and it's essential I'm prepared, but I don't want to get hurt.
