I have been looking to walk in a fundraiser too someday. I found this training schedule online that looks helpful. Marathon Training Schedule Simple 19 Week Training Schedule WeeklySchedule Monday, Wednesday, Friday: walk four miles. Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday: Days off. Sunday: Mileage building day You may vary the exact days of the week, but generally give a day off between each walking day. Mileage Building Day Schedule Week 1 2 3 4 5 Miles 8 10 8 12 8 Week 6 7 8 9 10 Miles 14 8 16 8 18 Week 11 12 13 14 15 Miles 9 20 10 20-22 11 Week 16 17 18 19 Miles 20-22 12 12 26.2 From Wendy Bumgardner, Your Guide to Walking
Curious how your walking event went. Did you make it happen? 30 miles is a very long way but if you're prepared for it you can make it happen. The amazing thing about walking is that, once you get going, it can have the same cardiovascular benefits as running - without the damage on your joints.
