Back to Half Marathon Training
Yesterday was an easy cross training day: 45 mins stationary bike + stretching.
Last week I had three cross training days on the schedule which was kind of relaxing, but this week I can see that I’m back to half marathon training (for the runDisney Princess Half in Feb).
In fact, this week will be my first week running over 20 miles since my taper for the Fort Lauderdale half.
My schedule looks like this:
Total: 21 miles
I’m a little bit torn because I have to be honest and say it’s been nice to do a bunch of easy, carefree runs. That being said, I like the structure of training and building towards a goal. (The goal of PRing).
Aside from cross training yesterday was a good day for watching football! My Dolphins won a tough one in Pittsburgh and remain in the playoff hunt!!
I lost a heart breaker in my fantasy football playoff game though. When you lose by a lot it’s easier to handle, but losing by half a point is hard. Oh well, there’s always next year.
This was my first year playing FF and I learned a lot. It was also a great way to bond with my dad since he is a crazy FF player (he managed 11 teams this year!).
My dad is really good too. One year he played in the ESPN league against thousands and thousands of people and won the entire thing! ESPN sent him a plaque and all this stuff. It was pretty cool!
Anyway, here’s to hoping we all have a great week! : )
Do you plan your dinners for the week in advance?
– I think I should start doing this… does it work? Do you stick to the schedule?
