Half Marathon Training Week 5

Happy Sunday! Hope you’ve had a great weekend.  We got a puppy yesterday!!! Gilbert (our city) was having an adoption event at one of the local parks and we found the sweetest little pup…it was love at first sight.  Her name is Winnie and she’s 3 1/2 months old.  She’s a Cattle Dog mix, definitely has some lab in her.  I can’t wait until she gets a little bigger and can start running with me! She’ll be the perfect running partner.  Right now all she wants to do is lay on the sidewalk and eat her leash 🙂

This week I did pretty good and stuck to most of my training schedule.  Didn’t strength train at all so I’ll try to be better about that next week.

Monday – Started to feel like I was getting sick so I used an extra rest day

Tuesday – 3.2 mile run @ 11’00/mile pace

Wednesday – 3 mile run @ 11’00/mile pace

Thursday – no excuses, just lazy

Friday – Rest day

Saturday – 6k run at the adoption event.  Did much better than I expected (10’46/mile average).  After the run I walked 1.64 miles down the street.  So all together got in 5.37 miles.

Sunday – Active rest day.  We’re going to try to take Winnie on a little walk and see how she does.  I have a feeling we’re not going to get very far.

Hope you enjoy the rest of your Sunday and have a great week! I think I’ll finally do some Christmas shopping 🙂
