Nike Women's 1/2 Marathon Training -Week #6

A day late with this post, but oh well.

Last week started out in a promising fashion!

It was warm, sunny and gorgeous!


I managed to get in two very nice outdoor runs. Monday, I wore my jacket, headband and mittens, but the headband and mittens eventually came off. Tuesday, I didn't even wear the jacket! It was so nice!

The only bad part was that the snow was melting so there were gigantic puddles on the sidewalks and my feet were soaked by the first kilometer on both runs. I don't know about you, but I hate wet feet.

I also keep getting gut rot which I can't seem to figure out, but I'm working on it.

The rest of the week wasn't as great.

We had another snowstorm Wednesday and wasn't risking my life to get to the gym (although I did have to risk it to get the boys later in the day).

Thursday, the boys were home and we went to Disney on Ice.

Friday, Saturday and Sunday were just brutal because I could have run but didn't.

I'm so far behind in my training now that it's kind of silly. From this point on, I'm working really hard on keeping up with what's going on and getting in my long runs. I figure I need to adjust them a bit but I've done it once, I can do it again.

I'm still trying for the PR in Washington, and I'm hoping to be under 2:30:00.  That means that I need to shave off 9 minutes of time.

Wish me luck!
