Half Marathon Journey: Week 5

February 17, 2016

HalfMarathonWeek5 This week was my first “recovery week” which is a reduced load, so instead of building on my running and increasing the mileage, I did what was steady. While I still ran 3 miles two days out of the week, I also walked for 30 minutes two days of the week, which was really nice! This week was tough because of the cold weather. It made it hard to get motivated, and get outside when inside is so cozy with a warm fire, fuzzy slippers, and Netflix! Once again, I went to the YMCA for my Friday long run, and was able to run on the treadmill, but this time I had some fun company! If you haven’t yet met my amazing mother (#momgoals) and my coach, you can see us working out above. Her biggest piece of advice for training for a half marathon is that you must have a strong core. Per my workouts, I have been doing core strength training at home, but this was the first time that I worked out with her in the gym with weights and boy did she kick my butt!

Miles this week: 10 Miles
Total Miles: 50 Miles
