Final Countdown

It’s official friends. I am two rest days away from my next half. Friday and Saturday are going to be filled with rest and healthy foods.

Want to know why I’m a little nervous for this half? My training has been going superb! I know that should give me all the confidence in the world, and it does usually, but sometimes those bits of nervousness creep in. I just don’t want to let myself down! I need to remind myself that this half has 19 hills and to just do the best I can!

My last week of training has looked like this:

Sunday — 8 miles / 1:12:36 / 9:04 pace

Monday — strength / stretch

Tuesday — 4 miles / 37:02 / 9:14 pace — gorgeous outside and I could have kept going and going!

Wednesday — cross training: 3.5 mile walk

Thursday — 2 miles / 20:34 / 10:17 pace — slight left achilles pain, weird?

This half is going to be different than my first, as John is my sole cheerleader! It think it’ll be pretty special though :) Love you babe!

Are you training for something? How were your workouts this past week?

      Well he’s not actually running it with me but he’s cheering for me the whole time! And based on what he did during my first half, I’m sure he’ll jog next to me for a minute or two each time he’s sees me (so sweet!) Plus the races I’ve done are small so that is not frowned upon. Thanks for all the support Brittany!
