Running Recap 4/6 – 4/12/15

How are we already almost halfway through April? It’s so exciting that the races I’ve been looking forward to for so long are finally here! This week started out pretty light and then I had a half marathon on Saturday!

Monday: 2.5 miles, leg and ab weights

Tuesday: 1.24 miles. I planned to do 4-5 miles. I started out knowing it was going to be a good one until I hit .6 miles and realized I had to get home and had to get there fast. Note to self: don’t eat 5 day old leftover taco meat again.

Wednesday: 3.1 miles. This run felt great! I started out easy, but then really got into it half-way through. It gave me a good boost of confidence before the race. Miles 1.5-2.5 were about a 9:15 pace which is fast for me!

Last run before the #halfmarathon on Saturday! Went out starting easy for the first 1.5 and random decided to pick it up. Ready to tackle 13.1! #runner #nuunbassador #hshive #skirtsports

Saturday: 13.1 miles, 2:20:56. The recap will be up tomorrow or Tuesday, but in just a few words: it was really great, I didn’t get hurt (but holy DOMS), and I set a PR!

Weekly miles: 19.85

I have another half marathon two weeks from today, so I’m not quite sure how to take these next two weeks. Sarah @ Run Far Girl has some great tips for running two half marathons in two weeks, so I’m going to work in her advice while listening to how my body’s feeling. Hopefully the next 13.1 will be another PR!

  1. Congrats on the PR! It sounds like you did a great job running a smart race after having to modify your training. Hal Higdon has training plans for running multiple marathons with only a few weeks in between – I’m sure it would be easy to adjust them to the half distance. (But I’m that anal person that always needs a plan!)
