Albuquerque Marathon Training

Well, I have finally decided to put my money where my mouth is when it comes to fitness and train up for a half marathon! The marathon I’m training for is the Albuquerque Half Marathon on Saturday, April 16th at 8 am (that logo is such an eyesore).

Two months seems like a relatively short time to prepare, especially for my first “real” run, however I am just aiming to finish rather than being competitive. Right now, I am running about 3-4 miles per day with a longer day of ~5 miles. As the weeks pass, I intend on upping that to ~5 miles/day with a longer run at about 10 miles.

If any of you are training for something similar, I would love any advice, feedback, criticism, encouragement, stories, etc… that you have. Just post em in the comments.

Also, for those of you who are on nike+, please befriend me. My username is (you guessed it) brandontreb.

I’m very excited about this goal and will be blogging along the way (amidst my other coding related posts of course).

It’s a long road ahead 😉
