Picking a Training Plan-

I have searched training plans several times before, and always end up back at Hal Higdons plans. I love how easy it look and how do able he makes it seem. He spells it out so well that it makes me feel like I can do it! He says "Put one foot in front of the other and run. It sounds pretty simple, and it is. Don't worry about how fast you run; just cover the distance-" That sentence alone confirmed that YES anyone can do this. 
I also really liked this plan too because let's be honest who doesn't like PINK.... I found this one here
It is pretty close to Hals Plan so I am doing a combo of both of them!  I might just even cover the completed days with and awesome gold star. 

I know I am only 4 days into training this go around however I really think what is helping me mentally is knowing I don't have to worry about week 7 or even week 3 I am taking it day by day and not STRESSING out about the weeks ahead. I think that is what will make it doable. 
Remind me of this when in a few weeks I am questioning.....

I always feel so awesome and inspired when I plan out a new training plan. My half training started this week - not quite sure how to add a trail race in the mix of it but it will be fun trying!
