My Weekly Marathon Walking Training Schedule

I'm really confused about which marathon walking schedule I should be using to train for my Honolulu marathon in December. So I'll just blend a couple of them together and make up my own. And I'm a bit worried that it's only 12 weeks away and I am not in shape to finish it! But I figure I will still try to walk as long as I can on the marathon.

This week my training schedule will be the following:

Monday: Rest (although I went to a yoga class)
Tuesday: Walk 3 miles (although I didn't walk at all because I was too relaxed from acupuncture-which I still need to blog about)
Wednesday: cross-training for 20 minutes (but I actually walked an hour and a half)
Thursday: Walk 4 miles (but I am also thinking of possibly squeezing in a gentle yoga session as well)
Friday: It's supposed to be a cross-training day, but I am going to the beach and am going to walk for 2 hours-that'll be give or take 5 or 6 miles. If I feel up to it in the evening, maybe I will take the restorative yoga class
Saturday: 6 miles
Sunday: Haven't figured it out yet. Either I'll take a yoga class or I'll take a slow hike in a hilly mountain area.

I am trying to exercise as much as I can this week, because next week I go back to my hectic work schedule. Wish me luck!


  1. happy walking and gentle yoga day :)

    I have to say i merely read the words RESTORATIVE YOGA and realized that's what I need.

    is there meditation as well?

    off to gooogle.


  2. Honestly, I have no idea about the restorative yoga! I have been wanting to check it out and it sounds very relaxing!
