Last Week’s Half Marathon Training Workouts (3/30-4/5) and Weekend Update

I’m on week 2 of the Nike Running App Coach training plan. I ran 37 miles last week, which is the most for me to run in a week so far. This is a lot more miles than I’m used to but I’m managing. We’ll see how it goes this week since I’ll be starting my new job on Monday. But here’s what the Nike app had me doing last week:Monday – Rest day.

Tuesday- Started with 1 mi warmup. Then did a Fartlek of running 4 miles at a faster pace, then 1 minute slower, repeated for 6 miles. Finished with a 1 mi cool down.  Wednesday – 7 miles at easy, comfortable pace.Thursday – 5 miles at easy, comfortable pace.Friday –  Ran through Noble Woods Park and ran four miles at easy comfortable pace, last mile at faster pace.Saturday –   Ran 2 miles easy, then a 9 mi progression run, then finished with a 1 mile cool down.Sunday – Rest day.

The highlight of the weekend was Easter Sunday. The kiddos found there Easter Baskets and were so happy.Later we went to the park.     While at the park since it was a running rest day, I decided to go for a walk. I’m loving my new watch!I’ve also started doing a #PlankaDay, which I saw on Twitter. Here was Sunday’s plank, which is day 8 of my streak.

How’d your week go? Hope you have a super week!

I’m linking up with Tara from Running ‘n’ Reading for the Weekend Update.
