Half Marathon Training: Week 3

Hard to believe I am already on my third week of training....

Sunday - I was wanting to go for a 4 mile run, but after 2.4 miles that I would cut it short. I am still suffering from a lingering cough. :( Felt amazing outside though.

Monday - Started T25 Alpha Cardio today. I found this program to work really well for me last time I was training for a half. I am hoping I get the same outcome this time around. Here's to 10 weeks of T25.

Tuesday - Woke up feeling a little sore from day 1 of T25. Not going to lie I seriously thought about skipping today. I had to tell myself the only way I am going to get over the soreness is to push through the pain. So, I did Alpaha Speed 1.0. I felt great during the work out until it came time to do the burn out. I felt like I was going to puke. Guess that means I was pushing myself, huh? Anyways, I got through it and finished.

In the afternoon, I went for a 3.5 mile run in the neighborhood. It felt amazing out. I honestly could have kept going but decided I would stop.

Wednesday - I just have to say I didn't miss the T25 Alpha Total Body Circuit. My poor glutes are definitely going to feel it for the next few days.

Thursday - Got an easy 3.5 mile run in on the treadmill today. I didn't feel like running in the cold today. After the run, I came home to do T25 Ab Intervals.

Friday - Instead of doing T25, I decided to lift some weights at home. Felt great to do something different.

Saturday - Since it was a bit chilly out and I just got over being sick, I decided I would run 5 miles in the gym. It was tough. I couldn't get my legs warmed up. I guess I really wanted to be outside instead of being stuck inside. :-\ I also dedicated my run to #megsmiles.

Week 3 of training is complete. :) Hope week 4 is amazing!!
