Ready or not SeaWheeze 2017 here I come!
I honestly feel like I blinked and 5 weeks of half marathon training went by. While my training didn’t start out the best these past couple weeks have been some of the strongest training weeks I’ve ever had and they’ve given me so much confidence going into this race.
Not only have I had some awesome training weeks I truly do feel like I’ve fallen back in love with running during this training cycle. I love the way running makes my body feel, I love the challenge, I love being able to disconnect from the world, I love having the opportunities to travel to beautiful places for races and so much more.
I’m a little late getting my usual Monday running post out but I felt so passionately about sharing my thoughts on the ‘What The Health’ documentary I just had to vent and get that out early in the week.
Week 2 of SeaWheeze Half Marathon training is officially in the books and I’m thrilled to report that I had an awesome week. I realized that after having such an awful first week of training that something needed to change. After a lot of thinking it came down to simply changing my mindset and just like that my passion and joy for running came back.
I ended up doing a 6 miler, 3 miler, 5 miles of speed training then 7 miles of trail running for a grand total of 21 miles WOO HOO! Along with all that running I took 3 yoga classes which helps stretch out my sore muscles so much.
