    Great article and especially timely for me. I’m training for TC this fall and it will be my first full. I just ran the half at Grandma’s, so I feel like I’m in a great place training wise. Since this is my first, other than mileage, I’m not sure what needs to be included in a great training plan! One of the plans I looked at only had me running 3 days a week, which surely didn’t seem like enough mileage to me so I decided against that one! It is a little overwhelming with the amount of training programs out there and how different they are. I feel pretty good about the plan I’m going with (Hal – but with a couple of minor adjustments) – only time will tell!

      3 days a week is not nearly enough! Let me know if you need any other pointers along the way. Good luck!

        I will take any, and all(!), pointers you have for a first timer. Especially anything specific to TC. More than anything else, I really want to go into race day feeling confident in my ability to finish period and ideally finish strong. I realize both of those things are dependent on training and a good mindset. So far I’m really excited and not totally freaking out about it, so I’ve got that going for me!
