I stumbled upon a pretty awesome little website today that automatically generates training programs based on pre-selected race goals, fitness level and target race date! It is based off of the Hal Higdon method, which is one of the most widely used training systems around.

The website generates a “.ics” file format, which can be loaded into most calendar applications like gmail and iCalendar.

I am working on a novice 5k training program just to get my body moving again in the right direction. I have until the end of march to get back in basic shape for half marathon training, so following an easier schedule is exactly what i was interested in doing.

Have a great weekend, and oh — by the way. Congratulations to Dave and Brooks for bringing the newest member of the Bard family into this world! We are all very excited for you both!
