Half marathon training Week 6 Runs 2 & 3

Yesterday’s run was challenging.  My legs were aching something fierce from 2 hours of Pilates but I still went out and got the run done anyways.  My pace wasn’t what it should have been, but considering I was roasting in capris, had sore legs, and had gusting winds in my face on the return, it was as good as it was going to get.

It was meant to be a steady paced 4.5 miler, but in the end it was a fairly slow paced 4.5 miler!

Today’s run was meant to be a slower paced 11 minute mile run but as it was windy and raining when I left for the gym, I banged out 3 miles in just under 30 minutes on the treadmill!

I was glad I pushed myself as I’ve been feeling pretty frustrated that I’ve not been able to hold this pace on the longer runs.  I know I can, I just find it hard.  Hopefully, I will see some improvement by October!

I’m really looking forward to my 8 miler on Saturday.  I’m hoping it’s not too rainy as I really do not want to run it indoors.  I’m especially excited as I still have brand new Blake’s 7 to listen to that I’ve been saving for my long runs.
