Towpath Half Marathon Training : Week 6
I did it- made it through another training cycle! This one was a little shorter than normal, but I'm ready to race. I have a few days of taper and the race is on Sunday. I can't wait! Let's take a look at this week in workouts:
I was really tired from my long run the day before as well as all the house work I did, so I took an extra day off! I did some stretching and a few yoga flows just to get the soreness out, but mostly just snuggled with Selma!
Easy three miles on the treadmill to get the day started! I felt completely recovered from the weekend and my legs felt good again.
Yoga / 45:00
Went to my normal Tuesday yoga class.
Dan and I went to a free concert by the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra after work, so I took an extra day off!
3.1 miles / 26:50 / 8:39 pace
This was such a good run! I didn't really look at my watch at all, but felt so energetic. It ended up pouring down rain when I had about a mile to go, which probably helped my pace out a lot!
Yoga / 45:00
For some reason, I had no idea that my favorite instructor (Tuesday class) also taught on Thursdays during lunch! I went and it was a great addition to my routine. I'll be adding in this class regularly after my race!
Just a nice, short, little run before work.
Early run in the neighborhood. Beautiful morning and my legs felt so good! Didn't have a watch on but my pace felt pretty quick and comfortable.
It was raining off and on all morning, so I got a later start than normal. It ended up raining a bit during my run but otherwise was perfect running weather! I kept it nice and easy for my last "long run" before the race.
