Yesterday wrapped up Week 5 of my training for the Nike Women’s Half Marathon. There are only 12 weeks all together in this training program, so I am almost half way done. Up to this point, I have had a few struggles, but all in all it has gone pretty smoothly. I hope that it keeps going this way, and that I will continue to get faster, stronger, and stay healthy.
Here was a wrap up of my week:
Monday, March 3rd – 2.83 mile run inside on the track
Tuesday, March 4th – 8 mile run inside on the track
Wednesday, March 5th – 6 mile run inside on the track
Thursday, March 6th – 5 mile run on the treadmill
Sunday, March 9th – 12 mile run outside
Total Miles: 33.83 miles running
As you can see, most of my runs this week were inside, except for my long run on Sunday. Luckily, yesterday was the start of some really nice weather with yesterday being almost 60 and then today and tomorrow it is supposed to reach 70! Today, I had an off day from running, but did spend some time outside taking Lilli on two walks. It was so gorgeous out, I wish it could stay like this forever! Tomorrow will be really pleasant for my 8 mile run, but Wednesday it is supposed to be in the 30s with snow showers. Ugh! But after Wednesday, it’s going to warm up again so any snow that we do get will probably be gone quickly, thankfully.
This Saturday, I have my second race of the year with the 5 mile St. Patrick’s Day Run. I am really looking forward to this run and will be posting about it more later this week.
Lastly, I wanted to share this link with you all that Justin showed me this morning. I thought it was so awesome and shows what the world would be like if everyone ran! Enjoy, and have a great day!
