Half-Marathon training: Week 6

Wow, 6 weeks in already!  Crazy!  This past week was a good week, busy but good.  I had a lot of things going on all at once, and I feel like, looking back I can’t remember half of it!  I wanted to write this up yesterday but was rather busy and then I was very distracted by this, of course:

 

 

I can’t wait!  Anyways, on to the week in review.

Sunday: Pilates was cancelled so  . . . to be honest, I can’t really remember what I did!  I looked back in my calendar and my Twitter and besides getting 20K steps I’m not quite sure what else I did.

Monday:  I got my braces off in the morning- horray! I only had them on for 2 months, but it felt like eternity!  I also went on a quick 2 mile training run and it was humid as fuck out.  It was really, really gross and I was very glad it was only 2 miles I was meant to be doing!

Tuesday:  I was meant to have supervision on Tuesday but it was rescheduled at the last minute.  Steph and I walked around during the day catching Pokemon as it was a hot and gorgeous day in Glasgow!  I went to very hot and steamy Pilates that evening as well.

Wednesday: Wednesday was a rest day.  I had a day full of errands to take care of.

Thursday:  What a day!  I had supervision (all good!) and cleaned out my uni desk.  I also ran 5 miles and then went on a 2 hour walk later in the evening and ended up with 37K steps!  I was very tired after all of that activity!  My knee was a bit achy after the run, but felt fine during the walk, so that was good.

In addition, it was so nice to have the sun out!

Friday: Unofficial rest day.  I went to the movies and walked home from seeing Star Trek Beyond (SO GOOD)!

Saturday: 6 miles.  I didn’t feel particularly fast but I was faster (barely) than either previous (official) 10K run, so I count that as a win.  It was really humid again, and I also had to spend a lot of time dodging Pokemon Go players.  I love playing too, but you can’t block the narrow walkways on a Saturday especially, with all the runners and cyclers about!

Another great training week in the books.  This week looks very rainy and I hope I don’t need to do all my runs on the treadmill.  I am hoping to go to the gym today to run and get some strength training in (yes, seriously!).
