Half-marathon training: Week 14

This week was a relatively quiet week.  It’s nice to have after the stress and hectic times prior to submitting my thesis.

Monday: 2 mile run.  If only I could be this “fast” when I am running more than 2 miles.

Tuesday: Pilates class

Wednesday: 6 mile run. I managed to accidentally pause my Fitbit for a few minutes.  I felt like my legs were really heavy and I was very tired on this run.

Thursday and Friday: Rest days.  I definitely felt like I needed more rest.  I’ve been very sore and tired lately.

Saturday: 9 mile run.  I’m not sure how I was even slower than last week.  I felt achy and sore while running and felt really, really slow- which I was.  I wish I could get over this mental hurdle, as I know a lot of it is mental.

I certainly hope that the excitement of the race will help me pick up my pace and that I will be a bit lot faster than this run!

Here’s my view at the half-way point yesterday.

On a completely unrelated note, I’ve organised a fundraiser for Mark Gatiss’s 50th birthday.  It benefits Switchboard who do amazing work supporting the LGBT+ community. Mark is one of their patrons.  You can donate here.  It’s only been two days, but we’re already at 20% of the goal!
