I can’t believe it is week 10 of training for my first half marathon! Where did the time go?
Last week was a recovery week for me and at first I was a little apprehensive about scaling back. Part of me just wanted to keep building my mileage and maintain my rigorous work-out schedule. But once I accepted I would be adhering to the recovery plan, I really enjoyed it! And it turns out my body really needed it! My knees have been a little achy since my 8 mile run and they were thankful for the break. I may have also relaxed in other areas of my life too, like housework and blogging. (Hey, Hal said it was a recovery week and I listened!)
But now it’s back to full training again and I am super excited! My first half marathon is right around the corner!!!
Here is my plan for Week #10!
Sunday: 5 Mile Run
Monday: Pilates & Stair Stepper for 40 mins.
Tuesday: 5 Mile Run & Strength Training
Wednesday: Rest Day!
Thursday: 3 Mile Run
Friday: 9 Mile run (yikes!)
Saturday: Stretch & Strengthen
Wow! 9 Miles! It will be my longest run I have ever tackled so far! And if you are doing the math, I am up to 22 miles for the week! But then again, I like a challenge, so bring it on! 🙂
