Half Marathon Training: Week 3

Week 3:
- Monday, 2 hours of volleyball
- Tuesday, 1.5 mi treadmill run, 14:15, 15 mins biking, 5.3 mi
- Thursday, 2.33 mi run outside in 32 degree weather, 25:00
- Sunday, 3.5 mi treadmill run, 36:08
- Total Mileage = 7.33 mi

This was a big week for me!  After buying a bunch of new gear on Thursday, I was feeling inspired to brave the temps and run outside.  I never run in the winter, I repeat never.  I hate that awful feeling you get in your ears when running in the cold.  But I signed up to do a group run with some ladies next week, so I was thinking I should probably get outside to do some miles before I run with them.  So I suited up and headed outside.  When I first started out I kept thinking, have I lost my mind?  But then once I got going I realized I felt fine and I just kept thinking, I'm a fricken boss!

I also ran my farthest run to date!  I ran 3.5 miles on the treadmill today and I felt great.  I stopped to walk once, but my time was pretty good and I wasn't full of hatred watching the minutes tick away.  The Kardashians and some Ridiculousness helped.  Yay for TV distractions!

My goal this week is to fit in 4 runs.  I think it will be a challenge, but I need to make it happen.  This may involve an early morning run before work, ew.  We'll see.  3 weeks down, 18 to go!

On a side note, rest in peace Joe Pa.  Super sad to hear the news, he was an amazing man.

How did you push yourself this week?
