I received the best posts on Twitter from some dear friends, "You know what day it is? It's Hump day! Happy Wednesday!" Then that was followed up by "Yay for Hump Day and one day closer to Disneyland!" I couldn't have said to better myself!!!!
Happy Wednesday to everyone and I hope there are some fun plans coming up this weekend for you! We are officially 41 days from the beginning of the Disneyland Half Marathon weekend and 43 days from the half marathon race itself! Wow...it's getting so close! With just over a month left until the Dumbo Double Dare makes it's debut, I'd better get on my training! Here is what the schedule looked like for this week:
Tuesday: 30 minute run
Thursday: 30 minute run
Saturday: 4 miles run
Tuesday, well you're not going to believe it...but I ran! ::shock:: ::gasp::
I know, right? And just to prove it to you, I took some pictures!
I took my Ghost 6's out for a run during my lunch on Tuesday. This was my first time running in them and they felt like a dream. It hardly felt like I had anything on my feet and the ride was so smooth. It was a warm afternoon and starting to heat up quickly. I pounded out 30 minutes (non-stop running, might I add, it's been so long since I've done that) of running and even though I was a hot and sweaty mess, it felt SO GOOD! I had the biggest smile on my face when my run was over, I was in the best mood.
I also wore this little gem while I ran, it has great vents on the top so it helped to keep my head cool in the sunshine. My hair is dark so having a light color hat with vents is a heaven sent for me on these crazy hot days. Also thank you Brooks, I did run happy! :)
Thursday was a bit of a bust, I didn't have any time to run on Thursday due to taking care of my ailing hubby. It was best that I was with him and taking care of him, so I don't mind that I didn't run, I ran on Tuesday.
Saturday's run was deferred to Sunday, because I had a 5k race. I ran the See Jane Run 5k on Sunday and had a good race! I wore the Ghost 6's again and they helped me to have another great run! I didn't get 4 miles completely, but I got around that amount so I feel good about it.
Overall, regardless of not being able to run on Thursday, this was a successful week of training in my eyes. I FINALLY got a run in on Tuesday, which is a triumph for the week itself!! I loved how I felt for the days after I ran on that Tuesday and it really helped to keep me motivated! I really start to feel like I'm making some progress in my training and being consistent is my first step!
Now it's your turn: How is your training going?
