The program is based off of Jeff Galloway's training method of running intervals. Run walking 3 times a week including a long run on the weekend with the group.
They gave us so many goods in the first session! I even got one of Jeff's books for free and he autographed it - amazing moment for me :) But that wasn't as amazing as running WITH Jeff Galloway the first day on training. I was in heaven!
After I got home I couldn't stop talking about how excited I was about the program and convinced my mom she needed to do the program, too. So Sunday morning my mom and I got outside and did 15 minutes run/walk with a 15/15 sec interval. She did AWESOME! We also walked a little after to cool down. Once we got back we completely convinced my Dad he needed to do it also so the three of us went out to do the same run/walk. I was so proud having my parents out there running!! And I know it made them feel good so I'm happy they joined in.
I never thought I'd even dream it but I'm seriously considering training for my first full marathon. If I can stick to the program and follow training how he does it I really think it's possible. I'm going to spend some time looking at the races I want to complete and make my final decision in the next few days!
Happy Memorial Day!
