Half Marathon Training Weeks 7,8, & 9

Happy 2017!! Hope the year is off to a great start for all of you.  The first 16 days of the year has treated me well so far 🙂

We’ve been busy the past few weekends with out-of-town guests so I apologize for the delayed post.  I’ll get last week (week 10) up shortly.  I’ve been spending less time on social media in the new year and more time taking care of myself so my posts for the next few weeks will be short and to the point.

Week 7 (Christmas Week) – didn’t do much this week besides a few walks with Winnie and some sprinting.  Mike and I took Winnie on a good long walk around one of the beautiful parks in our city.  Seriously love Gilbert and all the walking paths it has to offer.

Week 8

Monday – should have used the day off to get in a good long run but we woke up early to take Winnie to the vet and I was lazy the rest of the day.

Tuesday (Run) – 3 miles @ 13’07 pace

Wednesday  (Strength Train) – Winnie woke us up multiple times in the middle of the night and needless to say I woke up on the “wrong” side of bed.  Used a massage gift card I had received instead of going to the gym.  Was so worth it!

Thursday (Rest Day)

Friday (Run) – 3.52 miles @ 11’42 pace

Saturday (Run) – 6 miles @ 11’10 pace

Week 9 – back in the swing of things!! The two weeks prior weren’t my best.

Monday (Run)- 3.15 mile run @ 10’41/mile pace

Tuesday (Strength Train) – quick but intense 15 minute Tone It Up K & K HIIT workout video before bed.

Wednesday (Run) – was supposed to run 4 miles but my left lower leg was in so much pain for some reason, both my shin and calf.  Took it easy with a 2.35 mile jog @ 11’44/mile pace

Thursday (Strength Train) – Tone It Up Total Body workout video

Friday (Rest Day)

Saturday (Long Run) – 7 miles @ 10’39/mile pace

Sunday (Active Recovery) – two 1 mile walks with Winnie around the neighborhood. One in the morning and one in the afternoon.  Also played mini golf with the hubs.

My mom was in town for New Year’s Weekend and we were able to show her around our new city.  Mike’s brother, girlfriend, and daughter came to town as well which was fun.  We had a full house but so glad to see everyone!
