Week 3 Recap {Half Marathon Training}

Week 2 Recap

After being dumb last week, I just stuck to the plan and was a good girl this week.  Kind of, no stupid, hilly routes, but you’ll see what I did on Thursday that could’ve ended bad.

Monday
3 mile easy run at 11:05 minutes/mile.  I ran this on the dread mill, so I finished at the correct time of 33:00.

Wednesday
5 mile tempo run with 1 mile warm up, 3 miles at 9:28 minutes/mile, and 1 mile cool down.  I also did this on the dread mill, so I could make sure I ran the right pace and finished in 49:43.

Thursday
2 mile easy run at 11:05 minutes/mile.  I guess I am allowed one stupid thing per week.  I didn’t want to wake up early and I didn’t want to stick around at school, so I ran at home.  The only problem is that it was 1:27 PM and 102 degrees when I started.  I knew I had to get it done, so I just ran.  It was hot and I just wanted to get back inside, so I ran an average of 9:25 minutes/mile and finished in 18:49.

Saturday
8 mile long run at 11:05 minutes/mile.  I didn’t run hard, but I didn’t run the correct pace either.  It felt good and there was only 2 big hills on this route. I learned my lesson from last week.  I averaged 10:49 minutes/mile and finished in 1:26:33.

Week 3 is over and I only have 13 weeks to go.  I am excited about the race and it feels good to gradually be making gains.  I added another mile to my weekly totals, but I don’t feel dead.  I feel fabulous.
