In January I blogged about a half-marathon training plan I had just begun. Unfortunately, I did not stick to the plan and so I'm now a bit behind the eight-ball but not too bad. Last week I took a couple of walk/jogs and felt pretty good given the fact that I haven't been disciplined with my exercise plan.
This week, which is the official "Week 3" of the plan, calls for me to do intervals of 2 min jogging/1 min walking for 2.5 miles, then 3.0 miles, then 5.0 miles. I've already done the 2.5 mile workout and today I will do the 3.0 mile workout. Depending on how I feel, I might do the 5 miles tomorrow otherwise I'll take a recovery walk tomorrow and then do the 5 miles Sunday.
In the meantime, I've also been out on the bike--well, mostly "in" on the bike as it's still a bit chilly in Minnesota. But I'm making good progress there as well and look forward to how this season will play out. Last year I peaked too early, this year I think I will peak precisely when I want to, in late July when I participate for the ninth time in The Ride Across Minnesota, a 5-day, 300-mile ride.
Thanks for reading, hope you all have a great day!
