Workouts 3/19 – 3/25

Oh hey, it’s the week of my next half marathon. Oh you didn’t know I was running another half marathon? Was it because I didn’t post my training schedule? Or maybe it was the lack of running in the last month? Well, I’ll be honest, I have pretty much acted like I am not ‘training’ for another half marathon in the last two months since the Cocoa Half Marathon. Hm, what does that mean? It means that once again, I’m feeling very unprepared, and somewhat worried about the outcome. The good thing is that I have absolutely no goals for this race other than to finish, preferably under 2 hours and 30 minutes. I am running with a friend for her first half, and told her we would run together and I would make sure she finishes. I did run 7 miles on Sunday, so it should be an ok race.

Workouts – 1/8 – 1/14

Oh wow, the first week back after 10 whole days off. Being sick really knocked me down, so I was pretty scared at how this week’s workouts were going to go. To top it off, I am running a half marathon in a week – like next Sunday the 20th!!! Super scary, but luckily I had a pretty successful 7.5 mile run on Sunday, even though it didn’t feel good. I ran an average of 9:12 minute miles, even though I had a head wind and my body felt like I weighed a thousand pounds. If I can fuel right and mentally push myself, I may have a successful PR next weekend!
