Half Marathon Training Week 13 In Review

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

Sunday: Yoga 60 Minutes

Monday: 3.2 Miles

Tuesday: Rest

Wednesday: 3.63 Miles

Thursday: Rest

Friday: 12.12 Miles

Saturday: Rest

Thoughts:

Friday’s 12.12 miles was my longest run so far. It really makes me feel ready for my first Half this month ( I can’t believe it is this month.) My workouts were almost all running this week which I normally try to avoid but being at a conference all weekend, did not help. I am already starting to think about the what next for after the half but want to play it safe and wait until I cross the finish line process the experience before making any decisions.

Positives:

1. One big fat Personal Distance Record!

2. An upsetting work development seems to be turning in my favor. This is taking a lot of stress off.

3. J bought the new iPhone, so there has been loads of fun laying with Siri.

Goals:

1. More strength training ( I am doing much better with this for Week 13.)

2. More Yoga. The more I run, the more my body wants to do Yoga. It is also helping me to deal with stress better and I feel more centered.

3. Be grateful. I have a tendency to take things for granted but want to spend more time reflecting on what is good in my life.

Funny Picture Of The Week:

  2. Wow – great training plan! I too crave more yoga with more running! It sometimes feels like a massage session to me after a tough run. Congrats on training for your first half! I love the half distance vs. full and vs. shorter races – Good luck !
