Half Marathon Training Week Seven In Review

You can follow my previous weeks training and current DVD rotation on my Workouts page.

Sunday: One Hour Yoga. One Hour Banish Fat, Boost Metabolism.

Monday: Rest.

Tuesday: 2.38 Miles

Wednesday: 30 Minutes on the Elliptical

Thursday: 2.94 Miles

Friday: 2.23 Miles (First lunch time run!)

Saturday: 4.09 Miles

Total Miles: 11.64 Miles

Goal Miles: 20 Miles

Thoughts: I want to change my training plan. I am not making the weekly mileage and I really do not want to run more than four days per week. Consistently not making my weekly mileage is not helping my confidence for the Half.

Looking through my running books, my new plan will have longer long runs and shorter easy runs. I think this will be more manageable.

I did attend another Sunday Yoga class and am still enjoying it. I think Sunday after my long run is the perfect time and my legs are feeling great.

Week 8

Sunday: Yoga 90 Minutes

Monday: 30 Minutes on the Elliptical

Tuesday: Run for 45 Minutes Easy Pace

Wednesday: Full body strength

Thursday: Run for 45 Minutes Easy Pace

Friday: Rest

Saturday: Miracle Miles 15K! (Will be my first race longer than a 5K and the longest distance I have ever run.) Will be treating this race as a long run and enjoying myself.


How is your training going? Am I crazy switching plans halfway through training?

  1. My training is kind of done for a while, now I will just be running to maintain. Makes me a little sad to know I really don’t have any major races planned for 5 1/2 months. I think I may have found one for Thanksgiving though, if my husband doesn’t freak about it :)

  2. I started using Jeff Galloway and I LOVE his training plan! Two 30 minute runs during the week and then your long run on the weekend. I like the weekday runs being time rather than distance because it takes the pressure off (at least I feel less stressed) since I’m not worried about running X miles during the week. I was a tad worried that as I hit the longer distances would the 30 minute runs be ok, but so far, I’ve been good.

    Good luck with the 15k! You’ll do great (so says Tony the Tiger. LOL!)!!
