Half Marathon Training – Week 1 Wrap-Up

4 Comments 1083 views

Thought it would be fun to post a quick training wrap-up after my long runs on Sundays. (click here for my entire half marathon training schedule)

This week was great! Exactly what I needed to kick my butt in the workout department.

It was hard heading out for the long run tonight. My tummy was bothering me and it was a long day with the kids. But I forced myself out the door–always the hardest part. Once I started I decided a slow trot is better than sitting home on the couch watching TV. Even if I walked I’d get a nice stroll outside on this beautiful day. That alone is worth it.

That’s what kept me going and before I knew it, the run was over. I walked a few times but am happy with my overall time.

Here’s how the rest of the week went…

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    Good job getting out the door! I also had to FORCE myself out the door and told my husband, who could clearly see I did NOT want to go, I NEED to do this. It was awesome once I was out there though! Great job roni!

    Good job! I’m gonna go force myself out the door right now, when what I really want to do is go back to bed :-)

    usually the only workouts you regret are the ones you don’t do — way to get it done :)
