My Training Trail

Posted Aug 14 2011 10:28pm

With only about a week left in Chicago I find myself trying to soak in every last bit of what this great city has to offer…

Very high on my list is the Lakefront Trail.

I trained for my first 5k, as well as subsequent races , on this trail.  Pounded the pavement through wind, rain, sweat and maybe a few tears.  I lost a few pounds, but gained so much more—confidence, calf muscles, and a love for running.

I hate saying goodbye.

Denver, you better have some amazing trails waiting for me.

Half-Marathon Training Week 2:

Sunday- Rest

Monday- Rest

Tuesday- 3 miles EZ (treadmill) + all-over weights

Wednesday- 4 miles EZ (outside plus warm-up and cool down walk ~.6 miles)

Thursday- Rest

Friday- 2.5 miles EZ (tread) + upper body weights

Saturday- Cardio: 30 min. elliptical, 10 min. bike

Mileage total: 10.1 miles

I worked out my training plan so that I could complete my long run on Saturday or Sunday and since the rain wouldn’t let up yesterday, I went today instead.  My total mileage is low this week because the 5 mile long run will be part of next week’s total.

I officially signed up for the Denver Rock n Roll Half-marathon yesterday!  No backing out now!
