Half Marathon Training Week Four in Review

Sunday: Rest

Monday: Jillian Michaels No More Trouble Zones DVD 40 minutes

Tuesday: Elliptical 30 minutes

Wednesday: Ran 2.79 miles in 42 minutes

Thursday: Rest

Friday: Ran 3.33 miles in 50 minutes

Saturday: Ran 4.27 miles in 1:04

Goal Miles: 14

Total Miles: 10.39

Thoughts: I cannot get myself to workout on the first day of my period (hence the rest day on Thursday of last week.) Not sure if it is hormonal or mental but I just always take that day off every month. I am really starting to like No More Trouble Zones. It is a challenge but in a good way. The different types of ab work is particularly effective in this workout and I am feeling and seeing some results from it.

Plan for Week Five

Sunday: First attempt at a Tempo run. 2.8 miles in 39 minutes. I had a difficult time keeping a 11 minute per mile pace for the two ten minute sessions. This is my first attempt at a Tempo run and I can only hope that further attempts will be more successful.

Monday: Rest

Mileage Goal: 17

Strength Training: No More Trouble Zones and Nike Training Club two times. Planks for my goal of a one minute plank which is number 10 on my 30 Before 30 list.

I am loving the app Picplz which lets people who use an Android (or iPhone) phones share pictures and use different filters on them. It is similar to instagram but those of us not using iPhones can use it. I love the community aspect and how easy it makes sharing your photos. Plus it’s free.

Two of the pictures I took from my run on Saturday.
