Seawheeze Half Marathon Training Week 1
Training time is finally here! I just finished my first week of training for the Seawheeze Half Marathon. Even though I have a really far way to go, I'm feeling really positive and excited. I ran my first race in months this week as well. I'll be talking more about it on Wednesday. Until then, here's my week one recap!
4 miles / 34:55 / 8:43 pace
First day of training! I could tell that there was a storm coming, so I tried to get my miles in before it started to pour. I made it about half way before it started to sprinkle, and the last mile it was really coming down! Luckily I love to run in the rain and brought along a hat, so it felt amazing. It also made me run a lot faster!
3 miles bike ride
Nice and easy bike ride! I didn't time this ride, but I think I might start just to see if my times are improving.
5 miles easy
I took this run nice and easy to get ready for my race! In the middle of the run, I did 5 strides (about 50 meters where I pick up the pace to stretch out my legs).
3.1 miles / 25:10 / 8:07 pace
1.5 mile warm up / 1 mile cool down
My legs were a little tired and sore from the race, so I took it nice and easy for the three miles. Followed it up with some excellent foam rolling and stretches!
Congrats on the AG award! I look forward to hearing about the race!ReplyDelete
