Well, yesterday marked the end of my 4th week of half marathon training.
I ended the week with a 6.2 mile long run yesterday morning. I was only scheduled for a 5 mile long run, but Positive A wanted to run a local 10k course...so we did it! My BIL joined us. It was a fun run. We took our time, and even made a pit stop at Starbucks along the 5th mile for some hydration and restroom breaks! The last 1/2 mile was a killer on me, but I think that's for 2 reasons...first, it's my furthest distance...and second, the last mile was pretty much all up hill. Yikes!
I still haven't been able to squeeze in time for cross training and weights, but I'm really not gonna get that hung up on it. If it happens, it happens. If not...the running alone will have to carry me through.
This week I ran a total of 17.7 miles. I spent 3 hrs 47 mins running and burned off 2934 calories. Here's to another good week!
