Week 1 of my 14 week training is done! It went by pretty quick, too. If that keeps up, I’ll be at the start line for the half in no time! This is the first structured training I’ve ever done. I like knowing exactly what I need to do each day.
There are 2 rest days, 4 runs, and 1 cross training day. I wasn’t quite sure what to do for cross training because I don’t have a bike, nor do I swim. I decided to just got for a walk, which was weird. I wanted to run! I also did upper body weights. Also, I did the #AugustCoreFitness throughout the week. I am really enjoying that challenge.
Monday – Rest
Tuesday – 3 mile run
Wednesday – 3 mile run
Thursday – 3 mile run
Friday – Rest
Saturday – Cross training
Sunday – 3 mile run
Total miles for Week 1 is 13.57 – pretty good! Call me crazy, but I am looking forward to when the mileage starts to build each week. Week 13 will have a total of 23 miles!
I cannot wait for the Women’s Half in November. It seems like it’s been forever since the last one I did, the Iron Girl, and that was just in April. Mostly I want to see how I do compared to last year. I have come so far!
I will be linking up my weekly training posts with Kat at Sneakers and Fingerpaints for her Weekly Workouts Roundup. Feel free to join in with yours too!
What race are you training for? What do you do for cross training?
