Hey guys! Hope the 2nd week of 2015 is treating you well!
I’m into week 5 (FIVE!) of my half marathon training and feeling F-I-N-E (knock on wood for me please!). No really, I’ve been having a lot of fun challenging myself each week, and appreciating the growth each new run brings.
I’ve even been lucky enough to have a buddy for a few of my training runs! 😉
Love that man.
Week 5 also brought me my longest run since 2012… 7 miles! I won’t say it was easy, but I surprised myself, no doubt. I only wanted to quit at mile 5, but kept pushing through!
So what did my fifth week of training bring me?
Week 5 miles: 16.5
Total training miles: 45.5
Longest distance: 7 miles
Fastest mile: 14:14
Injuries: none, just soreness
Attitude: Positive, accomplished, excited (especially after those 7 miles!)
Pre-run fuel: Kind bars, sweet potatoes, or eggs
Fuel during run: None at the moment, just water. Any suggestions?
Post-run fuel: Eggs, avocado toast, lots of iced coffees, winter melon or smoothies
Favorite run location: Al Lopez Park (mostly because it’s predictable!)
Shoe of choice?: Brooks Pureflow 2
Favorite run jams: Every Teardrop is a Waterfall- Coldplay, Moment 4 Life- Nicki Minaj, Your English is Good- Tokyo Police Club, Livin’ on a Prayer- Bon Jovi, Trippin’ Billies- Dave Matthews Band, Sweet Child O’ Mine- Guns and Roses
