Of course my first week of officially starting my half marathon training ends up being a busy week for me, but I think it was still off to a good start! I also measured myself on the 1st and I lost 2.5 inches from my thighs and almost an inch from my calves. The rest of my measurements stayed the same. I was kinda bummed about that, but I know that my eating habits haven't been so great lately, so I can't complain too much about it! Here's the training recap:
Monday: 4 miles : 45 mins. outdoors
Tuesday: Strength Training : 1 hr.
Wednesday: 3 miles: 30 mins. treadmill
Thursday: Strength Training: 1 hr.
Friday & Saturday: REST
Sunday: 6 miles : 1 hr. treadmill
We photographed 2 weddings on Friday & Saturday so I definitely did not work out those days. But, based on Sunday's performance, I'm starting to believe that this 13.1 mile run may actually be possible! I'm also finding that I am not loathing the treadmill as much I used to. The Las Vegas heat is no fun to run in and going to the gym at a convenient time for me in the morning really works right now. We'll see how things go as the weather cools down and I can start taking my runs outdoors. Bring on week 2! Any of you training for an upcoming race? I'd love to hear how things are going for you :)
