Half Marathon Training week 18 (Marathon Training week 9) & Whole30

Monday: 3 Miles Hill Sprints
I was supposed to do 6 miles but I ran 13 yesterday and my legs are simply tired. I did somewhat half ass hill sprints like I was supposed to but I’m done. Good news, my knee is better and is just sore right now instead of screaming pain.

Tuesday: Hot Yoga
What a mess! This class was horrible. The instructor didn’t show us how to do any of the moves. Instead, she just walked around the room calling out positions. I felt like I was in a class that spoke a foreign language. I’m not sure how much of a workout I actually got but I did leave frustrated.


Wednesday: 6 Mile Zero Runner
My knee was hurting today so I decided to stick with the zero runner. I also started work this morning so running outside wasn’t really an option. Unless I wanted to run in the dark, which didn’t sound appealing.

We have had some crazy storms come through lately. Absolutely beautiful!!

ThursdayFriday: Rest
I was running late Thursday and couldn’t work in a run and by Friday, my plate was full. I’m really going to have to make sure next week I work my runs in. I will say my knee has been hurting a lot lately. I went to the chiropractor on Friday and he set up a plan. Hopefully, it works and this knee pain will be something of the past.


Saturday: 12.5 Mile Run
Running in the rain was a different experience. My schedule had me down for 15 miles but my knee just wouldn’t allow it


. The last mile was more of a walk, shuffle, am I actually moving kind of run. But eventually I admitted defeat and walked the rest. Hopefully my knee calms and I can continue with my training. My pace is about 30 to 45 seconds slower than I normally run during my slow runs but I think that’s why I was able to run as far as I did. I guess I’ll see what the weeks bring.

Whole30-
This is the last week of eating on the Whole30 diet and I am feeling great!! I still miss things but I love how I look/feel.

This picture was taken on Saturday after my run. When I met up with my friend to start running the first thing she said was how amazing I looked and how small I was. Gosh, I love great friends!!

How was your week?
