I’ve set a goal for myself to run a half marathon before year-end. To meet this goal, I’ve signed up for the West Coast Half Marathon that’s going to happen in Sarasota in December, and I’ve started training.  Each week, I’ll share my training objectives, as well as the results from the previous week.  I’d also like to invite you to come run with me.

Did I mention Fall is here?  If I did, I take it back.  It’s clearly still Summer here in Tampa.

Overall, it was another productive week.  I started it off with a 13.1 mile run on the treadmill. Yes, you saw that right. I ran a half marathon in distance, on a treadmill.

It was my longest run in almost three years, and I was able to make it the distance.  But I’m still training on a treadmill, and it’s only about 8 weeks until the race.  I can’t wait for it to cool down enough I can start running outside again.

Now that I’ve gotten a good 13.1 knocked out, I’ll cut back the Sunday miles and be focused on improving my times for the next several weeks.

WEEK 15 RESULTS

Sun: 13 mile run- COMPLETE.  My longest run of the training (again), and longest run I’ve done in a couple years (again).

Mon: Rest

Tue: 5 mile run- COMPLETE.  I did Cross-training instead of a run.  RIng rows, curls, and push-ups.

Wed: 3 mile run or cross-training- COMPLETE.  I did 5 miles.  Not the best pace, I think I was still recovering from Sunday.

Thu: 5 mile run- COMPLETE.

Fri: Rest

Sat: 60 minutes of cross training- COMPLETE.  I did ring rows, bench press, and overhead press.

AND HERE ARE MY OBJECTIVES FOR WEEK 16-

Sun: 8 mile run

Mon: Rest

Tue: 5 mile run

Wed: 3 mile run

Thu: 5 mile run

Fri: Rest

Sat: Crosstraining

Ready to take me up on my offer to come run with me at the Florida West Coast Half Marathon yet?  How about just getting started running, and maybe shoot for your first 5k this year?

There’s plenty of time to train, and whether you’re an experienced runner or a beginner, I’d love to see you come  do this race with me!
