Half Marathon training Week 4!

Yes it's true. I've made it to week 4 of my half marathon training! It's been VERY hot here in new hampshire, but I've managed most of my scheduled runs. This week is a 8, 4, 4 week, but I have a 10k race tomorrow so I'm shifting the schedule to a 4,6,4 week. I'll post a full race report by the weekend.

So the question of the week is, what to call our team of 2 (L and I) for the half marathon race? Some ideas are:
2 fast 2 fabulous
Super heros in training
13.1 Double L
Gu & Brew

Half Marathon training has begun!

Yup, you read that right....I'm going to run a half marathon AGAIN!

This time I'm training with L and her husband using the training plan from Galloway's Book on Running by Jeff Galloway. Galloway has a pretty basic half marathon training plan that includes 3 days of running and 3 days of XT. The longest run in the training plan is 17 miles!! My hope is I will be able to RUN the whole half marathon, instead of running 10 miles and walking 3.1!

I just finished week one of training with a 2.6 mile, 2.8 mile and 6 mile run for a total of 11.2 miles for the week. I'm also walking 5 days a week (during lunch) and doing pilates twice a week. No wonder my legs are tired today!
