Half Training: Week 2

05 March, 2018

Happy Monday everyone!

Still trying to get back in the swing of things, but we’ll eventually get there!

I cannot believe it is already the first week of March! I almost hate to admit that what my high school physics teacher told us was true….the older you get, the fast time goes by. It’s crazy!

This is also the start of week 2 of the Half Marathon Training Program.

The first week of the program was shall we say, interesting.

Not only am I trying to reacquaint myself with running, I’m also doing it while trying to teach 2 dogs how to run along with me. Super fun! Thankfully both Sam and Penny love to be outside and love to run so it’s been a somewhat easy thing to do. Just need them to realize that it’s more of a marathon and not a sprint, but we will get there.

Last week we covered 7 miles in the program. It was so great to get out and enjoy the sunshine and fresh air and to just be able to move. I feel like I’ve been cooped up all winter so getting out has been great not only for my body but also my mind.

Thankfully getting back into running hasn’t been too bad. Like I said, the hardest part is getting the dogs to realize that we don’t have to sprint every time we start to run. I even discovered that I can set up a profile on my watch for running intervals so I don’t have to try and keep track of when it is time to run vs when it is time to walk on my own!

This weeks programming is the same as last weeks: 2 miles, 2 miles and 3 miles.

I also plan on adding some strength training back in this week. Just some light dumbbell and kettlebell work to get back in the swing of things.

I hope everyone has a great week!

Happy running!
