Short and Sweet

28 Feb

Just like me 🙂

Last week’s training did not go as planned or hoped. But I’m not beating myself up about it because all around it was a good week for me and I accomplished a lot – a lot of not running!!!

Plan?

Tuesday – 5 Miles
Wednesday – 6 Miles
Thursday – 4 Miles
Saturday – 12 Miles (I really need to do at least something long this month!)
Sunday – 3 Miles (this must be what they mean by ‘taper’!)

I’m not going to go day by day to tell you what I didn’t do. Instead I will tell you what I *did* do!!

Wednesday – I ran 5 at the gym
Saturday – I ran 11 outside.

That’s right. Short sleeves and capris the last weekend of February – in New England! It was gorgeous. And, if we know anything we know I hate hills and tend to walk up them. But Saturday, in the first 6 miles I ran up most of the hills I usually walk.

I call that a win!

This coming week – short training week cause the Myrtle Beach Half Marathon is on SATURDAY!!!

Tuesday – 4 Miles (I already can say I likely won’t do this – I have a meeting after work and won’t get home til late…)
Wednesday – 4 Miles
Thursday – 2 Miles
Saturday – HALF MARATHON!!!

I’m pretty excited about this – it’s a new race for me and I love the beach. I will probably regret not staying down there longer but it isn’t like I can’t go back, right?!!

So I will do what I can this week but at this point, isn’t all up to relying on what I know I can do and having a good time!?!

    Sometimes, you need a lighter workout week! Good job getting in what you could!
    Have a great race on Saturday!
