Road to My 1st Half Marathon! (Week 11 & 12)

So I combined last week's and this week's workout schedule together.  Last week I was getting burnt out of running.  I didn't run as far as I wanted to that week, but I still have time to get there.  And during most of my run I was just going back and forth on how far to run.  I have trained so hard for this 1/2 marathon that I do not want to stop until it's over.  I am determined to get to 10 miles and slowly taper my runs.  This week has been a better week though...

Last week's training mileage:  11 Miles

Monday: Rest
Tuesday: Ran 5 Miles
Wednesday: Rest
Thursday: Rest
Friday: Ran 4 Miles
Saturday: Rest
Sunday: Ran 2 Miles & 1 Hour Step Class


This week's training mileage: 19 Miles

Monday: Ran 5 Miles
Tuesday: Rest
Wednesday: 9 Miles
Thursday: Rest
Friday: Rest
Saturday: Rest
Sunday: Ran 5 Miles

4 Weeks until the big day!

Wordless Wednesday: OC Fair and The New Dog

Road to My 1st Marathon! (Week 10)

Getting back ont rack has been hard.  We came home from vacation and then found out that we needed to tent the house.  We didn't have bugs flying all over the house or anything but we found some flour bettles from a batch of old dog biscuits.  And they were going everywhere.  It drove me so crazy and paranoid that I couldn't cook at all.  I was worried that it was going to end up in my food.  So we had the termite/bug guys come out and they convinced me to tent the house.  The bugs just drive me crazy!  Instead of unpacking when we got home from vacation, we are packing more clothes to leave the house for a few days and packing our food up.  Ugh!  Not something anyone looks forward to when coming home from vacation. 

Anyways, I did get a few runs in since the 1/2 Marathon is in 6 weeks.  Can't believe it's getting closer and closer...

This week's training mileage:  15 Miles

Monday: Rest
Tuesday: Ran 5 Miles
Wednesday: Rest
Thursday: Rest
Friday: Ran 2 Miles
Saturday: Rest
Sunday: Ran 8 Miles
 
6 Weeks until the big day!
