Half Marathon Training – Week 4 (6/22-6/28)

I think I can say that I am out of my funk that I had been stuck in for the last couple of weeks. I felt great about my training this week, and my body is feeling great as well! I can’t believe I’m just another week closer to heading down to Baltimore for the Charles St. 12 miler! I have been feeling really worn down due to work, but my job enables me to be active which I love. Unfortunately, I haven’t been sleeping very well, so I’m constantly exhausted.

Sunday 6/22: Rest, worked both breakfast and lunch shifts. 22,622 steps.

Monday 6/23: 6 miles on treadmill, 63:00 – was last week’s postponed long run. Ended up walking a few minutes because I kept getting phone calls about my car which was in the garage. Felt great, nonetheless! 13, 061 steps.

ONITB is the best long-run company.

Tuesday 6/24: Rest, worked dinner. 13,508

Wednesday 6/25: 4 miles at the track. 1 mi WU/CD, with 4 x 400 with 400 recovery. I took the recoveries pretty easy, and walked for about 20 seconds on the last one. It was fun, and kicked my butt! I can’t wait to go back to the track and hopefully get faster! Splits: 9:28, 9:25, 9:57, 10:25. 11,307 steps.

Thursday 6/26: 3.12 miles at the last week of the Spring Trail Run Series, 33:50. I will be posting a recap of all 4 weeks I participated, but this week was the best! Worked breakfast. 17,106 steps.

Friday 6/27: Rest – stretching. Worked dinner. 11,688 steps.

Saturday 6/28: Ran 3 miles on the treadmill, 29:18. 17,225 steps (as of 2:30 pm). I planned to do 4.5 miles but I’m simply dead tired after a 6 hour breakfast shift this morning – I could have used a little cat nap. Working dinner tonight as well.
