Half Marathon Training: Weeks Four and Five

Hi there. I hope you all had an enjoyable holiday weekend. I managed to make it through the weekend before getting sick today (half marathon training while sick = no good). I am hoping to kick this sickness ASAP so I can get back into it after taking the past two days off.

I realized I hadn’t recapped my last two weeks of half marathon training, so here it goes.

Sunday: 6 miles

Monday: Rest

Tuesday: 3 interval miles

Wednesday: Yoga for Runners

Thursday: Rest

Friday: 3 easy miles

Saturday: 3 interval miles

Total Mileage: 16 miles


Sunday: 7 miles

Monday: Rest

Tuesday: 40-minute hill treadmill workout

Wednesday: 3 easy miles

Thursday: 8 miles

Friday: Barre class

Saturday: Rest

Total Mileage: 21.5 miles

You’ll notice I kept my weekdays pretty light still (with the exception of Thanksgiving). This just seems to work better for me given my new work schedule, but I do find that my long runs are somewhat more challenging than the days when I was running 40+ miles.

Unfortunately, I had to take yesterday and today off since I’ve been sick, so I’m hoping to feel better by tomorrow and want to incorporate a little more mid-week mileage than I have been. I’ll keep you all posted. 🙂
