Hello Thursday, the day before Friday and the day after Hump Day. I haven't done a three things Thursday in a long time so it seemed like a good way to blog today.
1. Running seems to be going pretty good. I felt a bit of a niggle in my foot yesterday and considered not running, but oddly the niggle felt better after the run so I am glad I did run. I have started into half marathon training. I had hill repeats on the plan yesterday. My legs were feeling a little tired from P90X3, but once the repeats were over I ran two miles at just slightly slower than goal half pace. I called it tempo pace, but I can't remember if that was right or not. Whatever.
2. I don't really have a "plan" for the half marathon. I do, but it is pretty informal at this point. As in it is all in my head. Basically it means I do a long run, intervals, hill repeats or a tempo (or both) and some sort of easy run every week. This week my long run was 10 miles so next week it will be 11, then 12 and then a cut back week.

Your pictures are so pretty! That's a fast pace for snow packed roads. Great job!ReplyDelete
Are you a Gemini? You remind me of one of my Gemini friends. She always has three different plans going but somehow still seems to get things done! I am more of a one plan person myself. However, I think that in the end she gets more done than I do!ReplyDelete
All that snow...! Beautiful! (Coming from a South African who's only seen snow once or twice in her life and never has to run in it...!) :)ReplyDelete
Your recent instagram pictures have been beyond beautiful! It makes me miss living in a snowy place so much.ReplyDelete
Such pretty photos!ReplyDelete
I think you are off to a great start in your half training--nice pace on that run! Your pictures are so pretty!ReplyDelete
I love skiing and winter recreation so I actually get really sad when the snow melts away!! :) Glad you are getting into a half marathon routine of some sort! :)ReplyDelete
I've become a fan of the "in your head" training plan recently--Building mileage in the long runs, but during the week I've been mixing it up and listening to my body. It's so liberating! I'm going to enjoy a little more of this training flexibility the next couple months before it's back to a structured schedule to get ready for triathlon season.ReplyDelete
