Half Marathon Training: Week 2

Week 2 is in the books!

Week 2:
- Monday 1.5 mi treadmill run, 15:24, 45 mins cross training
- Tuesday, 2 mi treadmill run, 20:49, 30 mins cross training
- Saturday, 3.1 mi treadmill run, 33:05
- Total Mileage = 6.6 mi

I was going to run on Thursday but I did a bunch of squats on Tuesday (with 20 lbs weights in each hand) and my butt/legs were killing me until Friday.  So I decided it would be best to take a rest day and do a ton of stretching.  My training plan includes 4 runs per week, but so far I've only done 3.  I'm really not worried about it because some of the training plans I used to develop mine only had 3 runs per week and I'm just starting out, so I know easing in slowly is a good thing!

I really loathe the treadmill, I just get so bored and want to stop.  I always stare at the screen hoping the minutes will somehow go faster, but on Saturday I covered the screen with my sweatshirt and it really helped.  I really want to run outside.  I was really thinking about it on Saturday, but I just couldn't bring myself to brave the temps.  I am a wuss.

Thank you all for your encouraging words!  I really never thought I would be training for a half marathon, but since putting it out there everyone has been so supportive.  So thanks for all the motivation and keep it coming :D
