Half Marathon Training: Week Three
I only did ONE run this week. Oops.
But it was my long run, which I hear is what matters the most.
Work was ridiculous as I tried to catch up. I was also scrambling to make Christmas happen - shopping, baking, hosting my work party, etc.
I finally hit the pavement on Sunday afternoon, going for an 8km run around my in-laws' neighbourhood. I had planned to be running longer at this point, but decided to ease into the longer distances. I am confident I'll still be able to hit my distance goals before the race and I am less worried about hurting myself.
My run was 8km and took me just under 1:20. I felt good almost the entire time. A little sore afterwards - my knee and ankle are definitely making themselves known - but already feeling better today.
This week's goal is at least one run in New York City while we're on holidays and then another LSD at my in-laws' next weekend.
And now we're off to NYC!
