Welp, a trip to Hawaii can sure throw off one's half-marathon training and blogging about said training! But sometimes, you gotta take one for the team. I've been a bad little blogger and bad little runner. I'm gonna try to get caught up this weekend, along with a ton of other things!
Last up, I had completed my 12 miler, and it bout did me in. I had 2 weeks until the 14, and I was seriously doubting my ability to do it. Luckily, I had a weekend off (convienently the weekend I was in Hawaii) from long runs. While I was in Hawaii, I ran twice, once 3.25 miles and once 2.5 miles. That's pretty good! Can't beat the weather...but you have to go early because it gets hoooot!! Don't worry, I'm not waiting for any pity.
Once I got back, it's been a whirlwind of jet lag and sleep deprivation from being up all night with the boys coughing. But I did manage to do my 14, which I was dreading, last weekend. And, I survived!! 2 hours and 40 minutes, way under 3 hours which I was expecting to finish, if at all. And, let me tell you, I was sore. I took advil all day and it really helped. I now feel like I am physcially able to do the half (which is 13.1) and my peak training run (15 miles) next weekend.
However, I haven't run at all this week. That's horrible. Life has just gotten in the way. I'll shoot for a moderate run on Sunday, maybe 4 or 5 miles. Then next week I have got to get back on my schedule! Next weekend is 15 miles, then the weekend after that is 6, then the weekend after that is my race! It's getting really close!!
