Week 3 of Half Marathon Training
Monday: Well… the schedule had hiking, but it turned out to be a recover from hiking day. I was super sore! Plus, beach time!
Tuesday: 3.5 mile run
Wednesday: Speed work, 6×400’s.
Thursday: Rest (unplanned – had 3 miles on the plan!)
Friday: Rest (planned)
Saturday: 3 mile. This was supposed to be a “pace” run, but my Garmin is in for repairs, so… it was more just a run
Sunday: 6 mile run! My longest in awhile. T ran the first 5 with me (his plan only called for 5 miles) because I was worried I might get kidnapped. It turns out my fears were baseless – there were still plenty of people out and about at 7 pm.
Speed work is pretty new to me, so I don’t know if I”m doing it right, but it is definitely a challenge each week. Running five days a week has been hard, both schedule wise and energy level wise, but I’m going to keep with it.
We’re doing a 10k in about two weeks, which will give me a better idea of my “race pace”. It seems like speed work would be more effective on treadmills, but I refuse to run on a treadmill until it gets too dark to run outside at night.
