Hapalua Half Marathon Training Week 7

A successful week!  I ended up running every day, and since the start of March I’ve run at least 3 miles every day.  I’m not sure if I’ll continue with the 3 mile streak, however I will try, but I’ll make sure I listen to my body.  If I need a rest day, I’m going to take it.

Saturday, Mar 4th

Sunday, Mar 5th 
–  10.5 miles, long run (10:10min/mile)
Included a hill at mile 5-ish – very steep and difficult, but it was great to work the legs!

Overview:  I started the week going back to the basics.  I want to try and run nice and slow on my easy days.  I figured 1 mile would work well, as I have the time to not rush and it isn’t long enough to think “If I run faster I’ll be done sooner.”

Very happy with this week.  I completed intervals, a tempo, and a long run!  Success!  I may not be as fast as I once was, but maybe I’ll slowly get back to there!

I only completed one BBG workout, but I just didn’t feel like doing any others.  It was raining all week, and I have limited space to do the workouts, so it makes it hard (yes, an excuse!)  I’ll continue on with week 9 next week and see how I go.

Total weekly mileage: 29.86 miles


How did your week go?

      It’s not even close to what I was running two years ago! As long as I can finish the half marathon without dying I’ll be happy! And seriously thinking about a BQ attempt for the CIM this year….. But it’s a lofty goal and I haven’t even registered for the race!
