road to the half marathon: training week 5

After feeling a bit defeated by my efforts last week, I shook myself off and hit the ground running again. I started the week off on the day of summer solstice with a delectable 4 mile sunset run in Balboa Park. This week was honestly a bit of breakthrough for me and I realized what was happening to derail my training. Number one I was not planning the day ahead of me and thus not finding (making) the time to run. Secondly, I had set a pace and a goal time for myself that was honestly unreasonable. All in all I needed to find the balance in my training and my pacing.
