Woohoo!! I’m happy to say I completed all of my schedule runs (& then some!) last week! Here is what my week looked like:
Monday- REST before the big race on Tuesday. We went to the expo, shopped, and ate some delicious food.
Tuesday- PEACHTREE!! My favorite race of all time! I didn’t do as well as I am used to at a 1 hour 16 minute 10K, but hey, I completed the race!
Wednesday- 2 mile recovery run in the middle of the day! What was I thinking? I ran in a hilly area at noon, but it wasn’t actually that bad, and maybe I burned some extra calories!
Thursday- 3 mile run in the morning, not too bad, but a slow time.
Friday- REST! I did take my dog for a nice long walk Friday night.
Saturday- 4 miles aka my first “long run” of the half marathon training. It went really well. I ran the entire first mile without walking which is something I had been struggling with this week. My legs were tired, but the weather was perfect and the route was fairly flat.
Overall, a great first week of training kick-started by the Peachtree! I can’t wait for the next Peachtree when I will have trained for the run!! One thing I struggled with this week was tired legs. I felt like I was running through concrete, and I can’t tell if it was because I am starting pretty much from the beginning with running, or if something else is causing it like not fueling properly.
What are some tips you have to deal with tired legs?
What do you do to fuel for weekly workouts?
