….and Where I’m Going

by Sue

So two weeks ago was the official start of my Cap City Half Marathon training. This time I’ve chosen to follow the Runner’s World Big Book of Marathon and Half-Marathon Training‘s Advanced Half- Marathon Plan. Not because I particularly believe I’m “advanced” in any way; it is just much closer to my current weekly mileage, while at the same time providing a little challenge.


Double-digit long runs right out of the shoot. In fact all the long runs with the exception of one are double-digits.

Week One:
Monday: 6 miles in 50:07
Tuesday: 10 miles in 87:00
Wednesday: 6 miles in 51:08
Friday: 6 miles in 51:17
Sunday: 6 miles in 51:09

34 miles total for the week.

Week Two:
Monday: 10 miles in 86:52
Tuesday: 7 miles in 59:04
Wednesday: 6 miles in 52:11
Thursday: 6 miles in 50:55
Friday: 6 miles in 51:23
Sunday: 6 miles in 51:25

41 miles total for week. This week felt more like a marathon-training week.

All progression, all treadmill. My long runs have been all over the place–not necessarily on the weekends. All day long gymnastics and dance competitions are not especially conducive to long weekend runs. Therefore….gotta do it when I can do it.

That second week was tough as I gutted it out with a stellar head cold, but….no regrets.
