This week has been really good so far. Tired but I have been running alot, getting used to running 4 days week instead of 3.  I have run 305 km since September.

The boys have had a great week!  Playing lots and we have been spending time together reading and playing games.  I am getting really good at slowing down and enjoying the kids and Q.

Half Marathon Training Plan

I have finally figured out my half marathon training plan.

I mixed a few plans together to get one that seems just right for me.

This one: 20 week schedule
Mixed with this one: for the recovery week: Half Marathon Intermediate Plan

I am also going to throw some hills in the last few weeks.  The blue is upper body strength and pink is lower body strength from Lauren Gleisberg

Run Free

I am aiming for an 8k run tonight once Q is done work.

After running around all day.  Kids went to swimming lessons, then a park date.  Mama is ready to have some run around time herself.

I am trying to train myself out of the need to have my shoes super tight.  I guess I am a bit OCD when it comes to having things feel like they are not moving at all.  When I put my shoes too tight then my feet get sore, sore like you take of your shoes and hobble around the house, Sore.  Not what I am looking for....

I think that I have found a half marathon Training program!  I will post as soon as I have confirmed that it is the right one.  Or at least the right one for right now.

Warm enough to wear my pink thinner tights!  Yay!
