4 Bridges Training {Week 7}

I am officially half way through half-marathon training! Other than missing my 2 mile run on Wednesday due to crazy thunderstorms, I completed all of my workouts. My long run this week was glorious! It was in the low- to mid-60s, breezy, and cloudy. Perfect running weather! For the first time in my training, I got in the zone and felt like I could keep running. Don’t you love that feeling? I’m hoping my good running vibes will last through this coming week. I’m bumping up my mileage a little bit on every run compared to last week. Bring it on, week 7!

Week 1, Week 2, Week 3, Week 4, Week 5, and Week 6.


4 Bridges Half-Marathon Training – Week 7

Monday: Yoga + strength (My brother, who’s training for a full marathon, suggested I start doing yoga. He said it’s really helped his legs recover fasts. Figured I’d give it a shot.)

Tuesday: 4.5 miles

Wednesday: 3 miles

Thursday: 4.5 miles + strength

Friday: Rest

Saturday: Cross-train for 50 minutes

Sunday: 8 miles

4 Bridges Training {Week 6}

Wow, I can’t believe I’m almost half way through my training plan. T-7 weeks until the race! Once again I’ve been keeping up with the runs, but my strength training has been lackluster. Meh. I’ll try again this week. I won’t be including my meal plan because I’m only in town for half of the week. I’m heading to Kentucky on Thursday for a long weekend with my family. I can’t wait! My dad is an awesome cook, and I know I’ll be spoiled with his delicious food. 🙂

Scooter is my parents’ husky-boxer mix. He’s quite the character.

Sunday: 7 miles

4 Bridges Training {Week 2}

Week 1 of training went really well. I completed every run and strength workout as planned. I walked for my Saturday cross-training. Week 2 is essentially a repeat of week 1. However, I’m exhausted today, so I decided to go for a walk instead of strength training as scheduled. I’m trying to listen to my body as I deal with a stressful week, and I may try to make up for it tomorrow.

Saturday: Cross-train for 30 minutes

4 Bridges Training {Week 1}

Today is my first official day of half-marathon training! From now on, I will be posting my training plan at the beginning of each week. I am loosely following Hal Higdon’s Novice 1 Half-Marathon Training Plan. This will be my 3rd half-marathon, but I took a hiatus from running consistently since my wedding in March. I am essentially starting over. I have also found that running 4 days a week is best for me both physically and mentally. In the past, I have had trouble with plantar fascists and my IT band, and I tend to get bored running more than 4 days per week. So here goes week 1!
