Week 2 done, and I finished up by running a half marathon yesterday. Not a race, but just because I promised myself I’d run a half marathon on my birthday :)
Although it was a good run, it wasn’t the smartest thing to do without the proper training. I ended up with a huge blister under the big toe on my left foot. And it really messed up my easy run today. So lesson learned – I will stick to the mileage designated in the training plan!
Anyways, here’s how the week went:
- Monday: 40 minute easy/recovery run. 3.95 miles doing 3:1 intervals
- Tuesday: Ct or Rest: I rested (other than Lucy’s walk)
- Wednesday: 30 minutes speed-work. 3.13 miles doing 8 x 400 repeats
3 miles easy. I actually skipped this because of GI issues
- Friday: 40 minutes hills: 3.8 miles of Level 1 hills
- Saturday: Rest
6 mile LSR. 13.15 miles (in 2:27) doing 1:1 intervals
With Lucy’s walks added in I did 36.03 miles for the week! Hard to believe since I basically skipped 2 workouts.
All runs this week were done in the Skechers GoRun2.
And this morning’s weigh-in was 117.2 :)

Love that mileage logging book!
Thanks! It’s the Runner’s World training journal. Think I got it on Amazon for pretty cheap :)
