training . . .

monday: 2 miles
wednesday: 2 miles
friday: 2 miles
saturday: 3miles

week total: 9 miles

i know it doesn't sound like much, but i have until may for the half marathon and til june for the wasatch back! i am starting slow and hoping to stay consistent and not over do it. i trained too hard for the marathon a year and half ago and ended up not being able to run . . . :( so this is the slow and consistent training plan to prevent it.

and did i mention how nice the weather was down here on saturday afternoon as i was out running in my yoga pants and tank top! :) love the saint george weather

are you kidding me you young and agile just barely 24 year old? if 9 miles a week were the very pinnacle of my training schedule i would be thrilled!

i't been just like pulling teeth to get to yoga these days--so keep up the great work, and i'm glad you guys are doing a race closer to home, will be fun to cheer you on.

Good luck on the training. I am with you on that. I started training too hard and my knees almost couldnt take the race but I backed off at the end and made it.

... like soulmates, i also started to train for the half marathon this year 2 weeks ago. my attitude to the training is the same, starting slow running fast in the end :) i try to do my training below the point of aching knees ... yesterday i had a run over 6.7 km ~ 4.2 miles but in slow 42 minutes.

so keep on running ... greets from cold germany
