Half Marathon Training: Week 2
Week 2 is in the books!
- 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!
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
