So, training for the Princess Half Marathon started officially about three weeks ago. I mentioned that I was debating different training plans awhile back and my plan is to mostly follow the time improvement official plan from Jeff Galloway for runDisney. My first run once training officially started was a beautiful sunset run.
We talked about some of my trials and tribulations of training earlier this week, but I’m super proud that I’ve managed to hit almost all of my runs (I missed a maintenance run on this week due to a cold – drat!) even if I’ve had to make some adjustments (such as doing 35 minutes, a gym class, and then the remaining 10 minutes or finishing up a 4 mile run on the treadmill after class because I only had time for 3.6 before class). It’s not perfect, but it works. I’m getting the time and miles in however I can. Hopefully I can make up the lost time from this week’s missed run at some point even if I can’t make up the day anymore… and hopefully that missed run doesn’t make today’s 5 miles too unbearable.
At least we’ve finally got cooler temperatures! (Dear self, don’t jinx it!)
