Half Training Week 2...

...update on Week 2 of Half Marathon Training:

Friday, March 18-I finished my workout from last Wednesday that I cut out early on. I'm so glad I did because I had some good eats at my MIL's that night and needed all the extra calories I had earned.

Saturday, March 19-Plan called for 2 miles. I ran 1 mile to meet my ride to Master the Met ride, went and climbed 40 flights of stairs, then I ran a mile home. DONE!

Sunday, March 20-Plan called for a 5 mile run. Mattie joined me!!! Well, kind of...I started out 5 minutes before him and he didn't catch up with me until 33 minutes in! We ran for a bit then he kept going. Total run was 4.8 miles in 1:04 which put me at a 13 minute pace. Slower than what I wanted but it was a hilly course and I DID climb 40 flights of stairs the day before. After the run, we took the dogs to the park for a fast 45 minute walk. Dude, I slept good that night!

Monday, March 21-Plan called for 4 miles. It kicked my butt but I did all 4.

Tuesday, March 22-Today was supposed to be a cross train day. However, nature took its course and it ended up being a semi-rest day. Ran 1 mile to meet my bestie for dinner at El Mag, mainly to burn calories so I could enjoy the chips and salsa!

Wednesday, March 23-Plan called for a hill workout. I jogged for 15 minutes then I ran at incline 2 for 1 minute then incline 1 for 1 minute. I did this for 8 minutes then jogged it out for 15 minutes increasing my speed.

Thursday, March 24-Plan called for 4 miles. It seemed pretty easy. Jen met me around mile 2 so that last 2 miles went by very fast, which is always nice.

And that my friends is the conclusion of week 2 of half training! Six weeks until Indy Mini Marathon and 10 weeks until Hospital Hill.

I usually run the GO!, but am out of commission because of my knee:( I'm so jealous of everyone who is able to be out there running, although your post reminds me of how time-consuming it is! Good luck with your training-you're doing great!
