On the workout front, I’m currently logging around 30 miles a week for my half-marathon training. This is a lot of miles based on most half plans but I'm working on speed and endurance so I'm pushing myself a bit. Also, coming off of marathon training 30 miles a week seems like a break. I really try and get my workout completed in the morning. I like to get it out of the way first thing during the day. Honestly, if I wait until after work it is just not happening.
Here’s the breakdown: Monday I run around 4 miles. I like to refer to it as a shakeout run from my long run Saturday. Tuesday is speed or hill work with my training group which is typically 3-4 miles. Wednesday is a steady pace 5 mile run. On Thursdays I log 4 quick miles. Friday is a cross training on the elliptical or a long walk. Then Saturdays is my long run which is now up to 12 miles. Sunday is an active rest day and I try and get out and walk a few miles to stretch out my legs.
Monday- 4 Miles
Tuesday- 3-4 Miles Speed work
Wednesday- 5 Easy Miles
Thursday- 4 Miles
Friday- 30- 45 minutes Cross Training
Saturday- 10- 12 Mile Long Run
Sunday- Rest Day
