Half Marathon Training Week One In Review

Sunday: I did 35 minutes on the elliptical and level one of Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred. I have not done any of the 30 Day Shred in months and level one was hard again.

Monday: Planned a 4.5 mile easy run but only ran 1.64 miles because of lightning.

Tuesday: Took a rest day.

Wednesday: Planned on 4.5 mile easy run but ran 3.53 miles instead. I ran after work and started to get really hungry for dinner.

Thursday: Planned on a 4.5 mile easy run but it there was thunder and lighting when I got home and ended up doing yoga for 20 minutes. Felt amazing to stretch everything out, really needed to do this.

Friday: Supposed to do a 4.5 mile easy run but only did .46 of a mile. Thunder and lightning again and had to get back inside. Used the elliptical trainer for 30 minutes.

Saturday: Supposed to run 4.5 mile easy run. Actually did 4.46 miles.

Mileage goal: 14

Mileage actual: 10.09

I need to run earlier to avoid the storms we have most days here but I go to work at 7:30 AM. Running before work would require me to run in the dark alone and I am not comfortable doing that.The other option is joining a gym and running inside on a treadmill.

This weeks plan:

Total Mileage: 14 miles Running days of Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday.

Tuesday: Yoga and at least 30 on the elliptical.

Friday: Rest or some strength training.

Are you training for a specific race?

    • That’s cool! I train alone (because I live way out in Polk and no one lives anywhere near me) so knowing someone on the same schedule is really helpful. What half are you running?
