January Half Marathon Training (Week 1- 3) Recap
May 1st, 2016, I will running in Myrtle Beach Diva Half Marathon. I have not been doing that good with my training for the first three weeks. I have only done 6 days of the 12 days so far. I am using the runkeeper app to track my training. I do the shorter miles during the week and the longest miles on the weekend (Sunday). This past weekend I ran 3 miles on Saturday around my neighborhood. After the run I made myself a vanilla Shakeology.
Yesterday, Sunday – January 31st I ran/walked 6.2 miles. This is the longest I have run in a long time. When I finished my run my feet hurt so bad and I was a little concerned that it was my shoes I bought in January. I think it was just the long miles.
The shoes are Women’s New Balance WT690v1 Trail Running. I have really enjoyed these shoes. I have a bunion on my left foot and I have not had one single issue with it since I have been running in these shoes. I will continue to train in these shoes to get them broke in for the Half in May.
I have also been continuing to do strength training with kettlebell classes on Tuesday nights. If you haven’t seen my past blogs, I love my gym family. Our gym has the most supporting trainers and members. When I don’t feel like going to the gym or a class someone is always there to ask where I was and when I am coming back. Our Kettlebell class has its own Facebook page where we show each other our achievements and encourage each other.
Today was a rest day for me after those 6 miles’ yesterday, my legs and feet needed some rest. I will continue with the training plan for the rest of the week.
3 miles + Kettlebell Class – Tuesday
HITT Class w/ interval training – Wednesday
4 miles – Thursday
3 miles – Saturday
6 miles – Sunday
