Weekly Recap: Half Marathon Training Week 3

Happy Sunday all! I hope all of your training, races and family time went fabulous. I have been extremely MIA this week due to a new full time job and adjustment to 5 a.m. runs. It has been an interesting week but I managed to complete all my runs (which was amazing to say the least)! 

Monday: First day of the new job, which meant I couldn't sleep and ran to catch the bus. 

Tuesday: 3 mile easy run @ 12:57 pace



Wednesday: Rest Day = a busy day of work and orientations. 

Thursday: 4 mile easy run @ 13:19 pace



Friday: Hooray I made it through my first week of work! Celebrated with movies on the couch. 

Saturday: 7 mile long run @ 14:26 pace (6 miles was on the schedule but felt too good to quit!)



Sunday: 3 mile recovery run @ 13:39 pace



I will have to say my longest run and longest training week definitely put a huge smile on my face. I also finished listening to my audio book 50/50 by Dean Karnazes and I would highly recommend it to any and every runner. I laughed and cried while I was on my runs. Even though I am NO WHERE near being an Ultra-Marathoner, it gave me wonderful inspiration to push through those difficult days.

This next week I will be back to a normal schedule of Les Mills Body Pump plus I have decided to take on some July challenges. I may be biting off more than I can chew, but I will not quit before trying! I hope you all have a fantastic week and a Happy 4th of July! 

Happy Running!

    1. I love Pump! Are the DVDs worth it? I have considered it because they offer limited classes at my local gym.
