road to the half marathon: week 6

Time to run the holiday weekend off! At least that’s what my alarm said this morning at 6am. My long run was delayed to this morning this week, as the 4th of July festivities around me begged to differ with my training schedule. Nonetheless, I woke up and ran the 7 miles I owed this morning, and might have sweat out a bit of the holiday cocktails we enjoyed at the river this weekend.

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.
