Week 10 Recap {Half Marathon Training}

Week 9 Started playing with nutrition this week. Hopefully, in the next 6 weeks I can find something that decreases my trots.  Ugh, if you don’t suffer from the trots you are such a lucky person.  Mine never bother me while I am running (thank God), but about 45 minutes afterwards, holy moly.  Weirdly, I have […]

Week 4 Recap {Half Marathon Training}

Week 3 Recap Ah, week 4 is the first rest week of my plan and it was awesome! Ok, I didn’t really rest, I just had to run 3 days.  After Monday’s run I noticed pain in my shins and I knew I needed to find a new pair of shoes fast.  I did some […]
