Workout Windup: Half-Marathon Training Week 3
Three weeks of training in the bag! This week was a little difficult because I ended up being sick for most of the week, and ended up having to forgo all types of exercise on Thursday and Friday. Nonetheless, I still managed to get in a decent amount of mileage! Let’s see how it played out, shall we?
- 1 strength workout
- 1 yoga class
- 1 spin class
- Run 21 miles
- 7 planks
How I fared:
Monday: Run 4 miles
Tuesday: Run 2 miles + strength workout
I tested out a new barre class that just hit New York Sports Clubs, and it was a ton of fun! My legs were quivering from the wide variety of exercises, and I got a decent amount of cardio in the hour-long workout as well. Success all the way around!
Wednesday: Run 3 miles
I was supposed to run 5 miles this day, but was starting to feel icky. Plus I was running late, so I caved. I was hoping to make up the extra mileage at night, but I ended up feeling awful by the end of the day.
Saturday: Fifth Avenue Mile + 7-Mile Long Run
I had a blast running the Fifth Avenue Mile with my co-workers, and had a semi-successful long run afterward. Being bit by a dog is always fun…just kidding.
Miles run (this week): 17
Miles run (total): 46
Strength workouts: 1
Spin sessions: 0
Yoga classes: 0
Planks: Whatever I did in the barre class.
I’d still say this week was successful because I got a lot of exercise in despite being sick. And I was able to fit in my long run, which is really important. I’m going to be extra careful not to miss any workouts this week — I already did five miles today!
How did your workouts go for the week? Any fun stuff planned this week?
