Going Coast to Coast with the Dumbo Double Dare Training Week 1

imageI just did the math and realized I am less than 9 weeks away (60 days) from the Dumbo Double Dare Challenge in Disneyland.  This is challenge were I will run the Disneyland® 10K on Saturday, followed by the Disneyland® Half Marathon on Sunday. This is the first time they are doing this event.  In fact this is the first time I get to do an inaugural run.

Now while I am only about 8 weeks away I have been running since the marathon in January and keeping in relatively good shape.  I have already run one 1/2 this year in May, so I figure I am ready for this run but want to run it a little stronger than I did in May.  So I am upping the running a bit and I am including my plan below.  Additionally running this will also allow me to get my coast to coast medal for the year.  I am really looking forward to the run, and in just a few short weeks I will be there.  Enjoy and talk with you next week.

So here is my 8ish week plan based off Hal Higdon’s Intermediate Half Marathon plan:


Stretch & Strengthen




7 x 400 5K Pace or hills


3 & Strength


Rest Rest Rest


3 Pace
