Half Marathon #2 Training Week #11

Disclaimer: This post may contain affiliate links.

Training for my second half is officially wrapping up this week. It’s crazy to me how fast it came. It feels like I just signed up but that was about 5 months ago! Mentally I feel ready for this half marathon but I’m also scared of losing it mentally halfway through. I’ve been working on it though and I’m hoping to not have problems this time with that! I know the roads I’m running a lot better than I knew the ones for my first half marathon!

This weeks training was as follows:

Monday: Recover
Tuesday: Steady 4 miles
Wednesday: Intervals (1/2 Mile Warmup, 4×1/2 Mile Effort at Race Pace. 2 Minutes Easy In between. 6×1/4 Mile Effort just below race pace. 2 Min Recovery in between. 1/2 Mile Cool down)
Thursday: Cross Train
Friday: 4 Miles Steady
Saturday: Rest
Sunday: 8 miles

I did skip out on cross training again this week. Ooops. Funny thing is, I swore that this time around I wouldn’t skip out on the cross training as much. I did do a long walk with the little man instead of cross training though.

Today was my long run and I felt so great for the entire run. Last week I struggled with my long run throughout the whole thing, I had been tired and up most of the night before so I was worried about today’s run. It went awesome and I came in WAY under pace.

I started reading Meb Keflezighi’s new book Meb For Mortals: How to Run, Think, and Eat like a Champion Marathoner and had to share this quote.

“Most of us have enough areas in our lives where we have to meet others’ expectations. Let your running be about your own hopes and dreams.”
