Training Week 3/Countdown - 2/4/12

My Half is 10 weeks away. My goal for this 10 weeks is to not have any more fail weeks like last week and do all my runs! Its only 4 days a week and peaks at 22 miles! I can do this!!

This week:
two sets of 1x1200, 1x400 with 1 and 3 minute recoveries respectively
3 miles easy
4 miles tempo
7 miles, long

We're also 2 weeks to the beginning of rugby practice, 4 to our first game, and 12 to what will likely be my last game with this club. So, I am committing to adding some rugby-specific interval training to my workouts...starting now. This will also probably be really good for upping my fat loss (which has been a long time coming). I'll likely swap the easy and tempo runs for HIIT sessions. We'll see how this week goes.

And, noting fat loss above, I'm also committing to following Weight Watchers for 10 weeks. I need to lose 15-20 lbs to feel my best (the lower end of that is just below stupid BMIs overweight border, amusingly), and I think I can make the commitment with having a post-injury race PR in mind...

I started off this week right with a 3 miler with the pup this morning! Here's to Spring!

  1. Thanks for the comment on my blog. :) And good luck with your half marathon training. I just ran my first back in October and it was one of the best experiences of my life. I started off as a total NON-RUNNER and really enjoy it now. Best of luck!
