As you guys know (and have heard TO DEATH!) I am training for my first ever half marathon.
I run 3 runs a week:
- 1 x short fast pace – where I try run as fast as I can
- 1 x medium time trial – where I try keep my pace the same as the pace I want to keep for my 21km
- 1 x slow and steady run – where I just try finish it! LOL 🙂
I currently run in the mornings because its the best time of day to run for me personally (before my brain figures out what I am doing!) Also, the roads are quieter in the morning. My race will happen in the morning, so I am training in the right time frame for the actual race day. But with the longer distances I am having to get up earlier and earlier to try fit it in! EEK! So I may have to review and do some runs in the evenings or over lunch times.
I need 2 full rest days where I don’t think about working out and running and just recover/rest. I like taking one day during the week (Wednesday) and one on the weekend, so usually a Saturday, so I get a nice break.
So these are my goals for my training plan, so far its working out well… will keep you posted in my weekly recaps!
