Half Marathon Training: Week 4

This week was an odd week, starting off with a holiday and then I was traveling pretty much the full week so I didn’t exactly adhere to my plan – oops ;).

Monday – Easy Recovery Run

I woke up with sore legs from the long run the day before and didn’t feel right so I decided to just skip the run this day and hung out in the pool for the majority of the day.

Tuesday – Rest Day

I took a red-eye to Atlanta so I was supposed to rest, but I ended up doing about 20-30 mins of yoga and then a nice 2.4 mi run on the treadmill in the afternoon between meetings.

Wednesday – 45 min run – 8:45/9:00 min pace

Ended up doing 53 mins – 5.7 miles – 9.20min pace – includes a 1/4 mile walk in mile 3.  It was super hilly & 100% humidity. Oh and I walked and was on my feet in 4 in heels from 7am until 11:30pm 🙂

This is what it looks like after a super humid run – my hair was straight before I left!!

Thursday – Rest Day

I actually did not exercise per say – but I was on my feet in those darn heels again – LOL – from 6:45p until I changed at the airport around 4:30p.

Friday – Easy Run – 9-10:00 pace, sprinkle in 2 minute pick ups to race pace effort x 4-5.

This didn’t happen, instead I worked, rode in the car for 5.5 hours and then walked the RnR San Diego expo.

Saturday – Walk around expo a bit, keep legs loose

Actual: 3 mile run with Meb (so much fun, recap coming) – I forgot to turn on my Garmin until late so I only registered 2.82 miles, 25:09, 8:54 average pace.  Walking around La Jolla & then Little Italy area of SD.

Sunday – Rock n Roll San Diego Half Marathon

I finally, after 18 half marathons, achieved goal #1 for my half marathon training!!  I ran my first sub 2 hour race. Recap coming on that!

Now, my next goal is to conquer the hills of San Francisco in about 7 weeks.
