Training | Bremen Half: Week 3

Hmm, not a hundred percent satisfied with my training last week. But I can only use that for motivation this week, right?

Monday:  40 minutes on the stationary bike. Back to the gym for the first time in ages. Running outdoors is still my favorite by far, but having a gym membership is super convenient for when I need to get a bit of cross-training in. Plus, I love that I can also get some reading done while getting my sweat on!

Tuesday: Planned rest day = burgers and sweet potato fries with friends.

Wednesday: Easy 3-mile run along the Osterdeich.

Thursday: Unplanned rest day.

Friday: 3.5-mile run. I worked from home on Friday and was happy to get my run done rather earlier in the evening than later.

Saturday: Unplanned rest day. I’m sensing a terrible pattern here. I had all the time in the world, but decided on a 1.5 hour nap instead of my speed training. Not my smartest move, but I have to admit, the nap was awesome!

Sunday: 6-mile run. Had to wait for all the rain to quiet down, but once it did, the weather made for a relatively cool run. My calves were really tight, so I guess I need to pay some more attention to my foam roller.

That’s it for this week! Still plenty of room for improvement, but so it goes. Wishing you all a great start to your weeks!

    Ahhh running is so cathartic and training gives such wonderful structure to the week (even with the unplanned rest days…a reminder that we can’t control or predict it all?) I am considering training for my first half marathon later this year. Happy running!

    • Yes, you are so right. The struggle is to find a nice balance between structure and flexibility. The half marathon is my favorite distance! Enough to require training, but not too far as to prevent flexibility. ;)
