Thursday Training: You Can Do It

 As you know, I have been doing a local Road Race Series and the final race will be a 1/2 marathon.  Eek!

Honestly, I didn't think I'd really hang on that long and really take the 1/2 marathon training seriously.  Let's be honest, 13.1 miles is a LONG way!

I've printed off schedules and done a little research, but I hadn't started really training.

After last Friday's 7 mile run, I feel like I can do anything.  The 1-2-3-4-5-6 miles weren't all that hard because I've run each of those distances before, but 7 miles was new.

 Now, I know that I can do it!  I've knocked 7 miles out so what's another mile or 6?

Here is this week's workouts:
Sunday 8/26: Rest
Monday 8/27: 4 mile run
Tuesday 8/28:  Pure Barre
Wednesday 8/29: 4 mile run
Thursday 8/30: Rest
Friday 8/31: 8 mile run (all depends on Issac and if the rain comes)
Saturday 9/1:  Rest
**all workouts are subject to change

Great job on keeping up with it! I never thought I could do it either, but if you stick with it, you really CAN do anything! I have now done a few halves and 2 fulls and just love the feeling of accomplishment that it brings!

Such an awesome job! You are very inspiring. You may just be inspiring me enough to get me running longer distances. We'll see...

Nice job! Seven miles is awesome, and isn't it funny how long distances start to not seem to bad? Good luck with half marathon training!

Carolyn said...

You're crazy. And that's just my jealousy talking. HAHAHAHA :) Go girl!

I am so proud of you! I love that I've read about you running since you were training for a 5k! It makes me feel like I can get off my booty and do it!
