Half Marathon Training

Monday, August 19, 2013

I am feeling so focused and healthy. I downloaded a very realistic half marathon training programme and I finished week one with flying colours. It included two 4km runs and one 7km run.
For this week I need to do another 2 four kilometer runs and then 1 eight kilometer run.
The week after includes a 10km run, exactly on the day I planned to join a 10km fun run with two of my friends. So convenient!

I made a giant pan of fresh vegetable soup that I will be enjoying for lunch the rest of the week. I am still drinking lots of water. I am eating healthy. And I'm feeling great.
I lost a kilo which is great. Just 2 more and then I'll be back to where I was at before my holiday.

    Yay!! I also agree with cross training and strength training although I admit that I really slack off on strength. Make sure to take 1 to 2 days totally off during the week too.. Recovery from the runs is what keeps you healthy! Keep up the great work, one week at a time. The 2 kg will be gone in no time.

  Don't for get the cross training and strength training for injury prevention.

Good luck on your race.
