My next big race is the Seawheeze Half Marathon in August, so training starts today! Each Monday, I'm going to recap my workouts, starting with week zero. On Wednesday, I'm going to talk more about my training plan and goals for this race. For now, let's see what I did in my final non-training week!
Monday : "Rest" Day
Tuesday : 3 milesNice and easy run around the neighborhood. I moved to a really hilly area, so I see a lot of hill repeats in my future!
Wednesday : 4 miles / 37:10 / 9:17 paceI really didn't want to go running because it was the hottest and most humid day we had in a while, but since it was Global Running Day I made myself go! I felt surprisingly good, like I'm getting my old fitness back! Sometimes the runs you don't want to do end up being the best.
Thursday : Rest
Friday : 1 hour yoga
I have a ton of workout DVD's that I stopped using once I joined a gym, so now that I don't have a membership I'm going to be using these again! Today I did Jillian Michael's Yoga Meltdown and it was NOT easy!
Saturday : 4 miles / 35:15 / 8:48 pace
Hello, summer running! The day started out cool, but by the time I finally got myself out the door it was hot and humid. Definitely need to start heading out early in the morning!
Sunday : 5 mile bike ride
I got my tires pumped up and went out for a long bike ride (long for me at least!). The weather was perfect and I'm starting to feel more confident riding! Hopefully I can keep adding on distance and hit my annual goal.
Now I think I'm almost ready for training to start!
How was your week of workouts?
Is anyone else training for a race?
