Week Three - Half Marathon Training

Sunday, January 06, 2013

Today ended week three. The "big" assignment for today was a 2 mile brisk walk. Got that down first thing this morning! Feels good to cross off each day as I complete the assignment. I have not missed a day yet in the 3 weeks!

Next week the daily assignments increase each day by 5 minutes. They are very easy assignments, nothing challenging yet. But next Saturdays longer distance is 5 miles. I don't remember the last time I walked 5 miles all at once. I've done it twice this week but each time they were spread out in two different workouts.

My new shoes are doing great. Still having feet pain. I'm sure some of it is from wearing bad shoes and will take awhile for my feet to feel better but I do think some of it may be medical. I'll have to check it out. Need to stay healthy for the Half.

    Woohoo! You got this! Hope your feet feel better soon and if not, get it checked by a doctor before it gets worse

    Where do your feet hurt? You might want to check if there is a Dr Scholl's measuring station near you. Their othodics have helped me tremendously.

    Hi Krista,
Take care of your feet. I did the 5K your way training plan in the fall and really liked following the structure of checkin off the days tasks, too. Have fun!
