Productive Monday

Our soccer game yesterday was fun! We won 3-2, I think it was. Of course it was hot but since it’s Summer Soccer, we play 7 vs. 7 and it’s only half of the field size. But, that doesn’t mean your still not running alot! Luckily we had a lot of girl subs, 8! So I was able to chat alot with my team mates when I wasn’t playing! Our team has 1 co-ed and 2 men’s teams so I stayed for the first men’s game to root my guys on! They did great! It brings back memories of being at the soccer field all weekend for soccer tournaments when I was younger! I love it!

So today I am trying to be productive. I let myself sleep in until about 7:45 then headed out for a 3 miler. It was HOT! Check out how sweaty I look!


It always feels so great when you come back all hot and sweaty! What an awesome workout! Tomorrow is my scheduled long run, 6 miles. I am working on a pre-training plan to get me ready to start my half marathon training in about 5 weeks. So I will post that soon when I get it finished. After my run I took Sadie for about a mile walk and she was pooped when we got back! I also did an ab workout.

The rest of the day includes going to the grocery store, cleaning my house, killing some weeds in my flower beds, organizing my desk, and going to eat dinner at Bonefish with a friend! Hope everyone is having a fabulous day!

For those of you who have run half marathon’s before, what are your favorite training plans? I’m still trying to find one that I like best!


  1. Well I'm glad someone is being productive today! I'm sure not. I need to do all those same things. Maybe tomorrow! Have fun at Bonefish!

  2. Sounds like a good day.

    I have run a couple of half marathons but I ran with a group and they made training plans for us. There are so many out there, I know. It's overwhelming. Just pick one and go for it. You can always make adjustments.

  3. Sweaty running pictures are always fun. Glad you had a good time playing soccer!

    I used Hal Higdon's marathon plan, and it worked really well for me. I know he has plans for half marathons, so you might want to check them out.

  4. It is hot here too!

  5. I haven't yet trained for a half-marathon. I just began running in January. However, in preparing for a 10K I a lot of people suggested Hal Higdon's. I hope this helps!

    Love your blog! :)

  6. When I was training for a half marathon before my injury, I was using Runners World training plan...Yay for a sweaty workout! They are so addicting :)

    congrats on winning your game! Hope you had a good day :)

  7. YAY for being productive and YAY for good workouts :)

  8. So sweaty for sure - it was FREAKING HOT outside!

  9. Good work pushing through the heat!

    I'm really liking the FIRST half marathon plan from Runners World. It's my recomendation, as long as you have atleast a few months of running down :)
