Workouts – Last Week Today – October 16

fontover_201671013354641-1.jpgI am in my 14th week of training for the Houston Half and my 3rd week of training for the Houston Marathon. The 2 training plans are peacefully co-existing.  I have 2 more weeks until the Houston Half!

This week, I had a great week of training! Here’s how my week shook out:

Sunday – 11 miles easy. I wasn’t sure how I would feel after the hard effort at the 10 mile race the day before, but I had a great run!  I think the coolish temps helped!

Monday – Rest

Tuesday – 4 miles easy & 5 stride outs with Anam & body weight exercises.

Wednesday –  Rest/Lawn work.

Thursday – 4 miles – 1 mile w/up & c/down with 2 miles “fast” in between. I was supposed to do 3 miles “fast”, but got stuck in some great Houston traffic on the way home and had to cut it early… it was dark when I started my cool down mile.

Friday – Rest.

Saturday – 5 miles easy with Sorcha.

Total Miles = 24

    Great week of training. As much as I hate running when it is cooler, it does make runs feel a bit easier.

      Thanks! Even just a few degrees seem to help, or at least lower humidity.

    Another strong week! I’m so impressed you can run AFTER work. I mentally cooked by then. (And my peeps are hungry for dinner!) I’m glad you are getting to take advantage of some cooler temps. Only two more weeks until the half? I know you must be getting excited. Thanks for linking, Vicki!

      I find after work helps to de-stress from the day and commute. Thankfully, I can usually pick up a couple orders of summer rolls from the Pho restaurant on my way home and the hubs is set for dinner.

    Another great week of training for you! I ran after work yesterday and I thought how thankful I am that I’ve been converted to a morning runner lol.

    Hooray for another great week and coolish temps. It’s cooling off here now too which makes runs that much more enjoyable!
