Half Marathon Training with Pure Barre

Thursday, July 11, 2013

New here?  Pretty please follow me on bloglovin it will hook you up with updates on how I am doing with my training!

Ok people!  You probably saw the results from the last time I challenged myself to 60 days of Pure Barre at least 3-4 days per week.  If not check it out here.  This time I am training for the Denver Half Marathon, on September 8th.  This will be my second half marathon.  When I trained for the first one, I completely stopped going to Pure Barre and just focused on running.  I have to tell you that my body didn't look nearly as good as it did when I did my Pure Barre 60 day challenge.  So this time around I am going to work on a balance between my training and Pure Barre.  I posted a training schedule at the beginning of June, which I only half-heartedly followed.  So my sweet husband, who also happened to do his very first marathon during his first Ironman Triathlon, set me up with a new training schedule starting next Monday.  I am running and doing barre this week though, on a schedule similar to where this one starts.

Here is my schedule.  I will take some before pictures tonight and post those tomorrow and follow up with my blog on how it's going!

Is anyone else out there running the Denver Half?  Anyone want to challenge themselves to 60 days of Pure Barre 4 times a week?

  1. YES! I just started training for a half but don't want to give up Barre (which is new to me). So thankful to see you created a training plan. I will be following it for sure.

    1. Awesome Alison!!! What half are you doing? I did my first half last year and didn't do any PB while training and I didn't maintain any of the tone that I had at the end of my 60 days. It's amazing what Pure Barre does to change your body!

  2. I have been doing PB for a year. I am using your plan to train for the Glass Slipper Challenge @ Walt Disney World next month. I am very excited to have both running and PB together. Thanks for putting this together and publishing.

    1. That's SO exciting!!!! I actually just started back up with PB and I am not training for a half but I am running three times a week. It definitely helps to get the results you want faster when you mix in the cardio. Please come back and let me know how the Glass Slipper Challenge goes! Good luck!
