Half Marathon Training Week #3 complete! Mid week was a little rough and wasn’t sure how my long run would be on Sunday. The miles are starting to rack up and I am itching to be able to run outside again. When is this snow going to end!?! I miss my trail runs.

My boyfriend and I went to the gym Friday night. I really pushed the pace on this run. I feel like I’m slowly but surely becoming a stronger runner. After he showed around the weight room section. I did a few squats. I want to start incorporating more weight training to supplement with running. I am not going to lie, I am a cardio junkie and a total newbie to weights. I’m slowly going to start incorporating more weight training into my workout routine.
Plan: teach spin class

The stereo was barely working to the point the music SO bad that a few members left! Thankfully, mid class the manager was able to fix it. I appreciate all the members who stuck with it the whole class. We got a great workout in.
Plan: 5 mile run
Actual: 5 miles
Still on a runner’s high writing this post. As the distance is starting to increase, it is a little intimidating. I was dreading doing this run on the treadmill, but it actually went really well! I felt strong throughout the whole run. I survived 5 miles on the “dread”mill. I want to be able to run outside so bad!! Snow go away!
I refueled with my favorite smoothie after!
Total January miles: 47
So far February miles: 19
