Half Marathon Training Week 6

I had a good running week this week! Due to the rain I had to shuffle some runs around, putting me running 4 days in a row again! Oh well, I managed it:) So here’s the recap:

Monday: Strength Training and Walking

Tuesday: Fartleck Run 5-4-3-2-1 (5 miles total)

Wednesday: Strength Training and Walking

Thursday: 8 miles @ 10:43 pace

Friday: 4 miles @ 9:57 pace

Saturday: 4 miles @ 9:38 pace

Sunday: 5 miles @ 10:25 pace

Total: 26 miles!!


Todays 5 miler was good but tough. Being that it was my 4th day of running in a row, my legs were beat. They were tired this whole run and it didn’t really help that it was a hilly 5 miles. Even though my legs felt tired, my breathing felt great! I’m sure I could have kept going at that pace for a few more miles at least! I’m glad I didn’t push it because I don’t want to over do it. Tomorrow is an off day and I am looking forward to being able to sleep in a little (only until 7am but that’s sleeping in for me!!). Tomorrow is my BIG TEST that I have been talking about all week. I am so ready to just have it over with! Ugh, so sick of studying the same thing over and over!!


Here’s the rest of my eats from today:


I had some Chicken Salad that I made earlier today on a bed of Romaine lettuce and a Honey crisp apple! The apple was divine and everything else was really yummy too!


With a nice glass of Monkey Bay Sauvignon Blanc!


And some Butterfinger Ice Cream for dessert! Note: I may have had a little more than this and am now totally regretting. Al bought this yesterday, it definitely wasn’t my doing because I have no ice cream self control!!


Gotta catch up on some blogs and then go to bed! I’m sleepy:) Goodnight!
