Half Marathon Training Recap (8/25-8/31)

Half marathon training is going fine. I’m getting my runs done, so that’s good. According to the Asics app I’m following, this week was the end of the Race Simulation Phase and the next phase is Tapering & Race Day. The Oregon Half Marathon is almost here, just two weeks away.

Monday was a rest day. On Tuesday, I did both PiYo Buns and Core. PiYo Buns really works your lower body and PiYo Core is a great ab workout!

On Wednesday, I jogged three miles and then did PiYo Drench. I don’t like how Drench is a long workout but I got through it. I was dripping sweat at the end.IMG_7776-0.JPG

On Thursday, I got up around 5 am to get my 7.5 mile run done.  It was still dark out when I started my run, and I was a little nervous but I did have a reflective running vest so I could be seen better by cars. Had a good run.

On Friday, I did PiYo Sculpt. It’s a good total body workout.IMG_7853.JPG

On Saturday, I jogged three miles on the treadmill. I’d rather run outside but my hubby was working and I didn’t get up early before he went to work. But I got my three miles done.IMG_7868.JPGSunday was my long run at race pace. I ran eleven miles. I tried some ENERGYbits, which I’ll give my full review later, and used my Simple Hydration bottle to hydrate. I also used a HoneyStinger gel at the halfway point. I was having a good run until I started getting a side ache a little after mile 8. My right side started to hurt quite a bit that I had to slow down and stop. I drank some water and started back up and pushed through. Other than that, it was a good run.
