Week of 11/2/15 – 11/8/15: Mt Juliet Half Training

week of 11/2 to 11/8

This week went okay. I actually got in four days of running, which I haven’t done since…May? June? It’s been awhile. I’m abstaining from any tough workouts, like speedwork, tempos, or hill repeats until after this half is over. I know I’m not in as good of shape as I was in the spring and I don’t want to push too hard. My main goal is just to get through the distance and build up my base to make training for my spring races much easier!

Monday: rest day
Tuesday: 2 miles (11:02 avg pace)
Wednesday: 3.4 miles (11:31 avg pace)
Thursday: rest day
Friday: rest day
Saturday: 3 miles (10:52 avg pace)
Sunday: 11 miles (11:20 avg pace)

I went back to 2:1 intervals for my long run this week, since the 3:1.5 were a disaster the week before. I also ate one gel (a caffeinated raspberry Huma) at mile six, which I think helped, although the last two miles were quite torturous, mainly because they were uphill.

Less than a month before the half!
