10 weeks from start to finish to train for a half marathon. My training felt less than ideal, and I certainly ran VERY low mileage. POTS throws a wrench into training. However, one thing I can say for myself- I stayed pretty balanced. I did strength training, pilates, and biked every week (except this past week- no biking because I didn’t want to accidently fall and hurt myself!). This balance led to some strong training, and I ran a great race (you can read the recap here). Here’s what my final week of training looked like:
- Sunday: REST
- Monday: 2.15 mile walk (fit in a workout at the airport!)
- Tuesday: 1.4 mile run, Best Body Bootcamp Phase 4, Workout A, & Pilates Barre
- Wednesday: REST
- Thursday: Pilates
- Friday: Walking around expo
- Saturday: HALF MARATHON: 13.1 mile run!!!
So, here we are, at the end of another training cycle. I’m not sure where I’ll go from here, but I know that I plan to continue staying balanced and biking, running, walking, strength training, and doing pilates and barre. I love the mix of exercises, and I think a balanced approach is what’s best for me.
Thanks for following along on my journey to my fourth half marathon!
