Half Marathon Training : The Last Days

Three more short runs! That’s all I have left until race day!

I don’t know why I’m SO excited about this race. I’ve ran a lot of races, but this one is just so fun. I think I’m excited to get to go on a mini vacation, spend some time with friends, and be in my home state.  I mean really, I am SOOOO excited!!!!!

With less than a week left, the only runs I have to do are a set of sprints, a two miler, and a three miler. Then it’s rest rest rest and pack for San Francisco. Oh, and figure out what I’m going to wear on race day. I figure we have to have a “Half Marathon Fashion” post, right?

Here are this past week’s running stats, for those interested:

Sunday: hike! {this was pretty fun since I haven’t hiked in forever. it was fun to use my legs for something other than running.}
Monday: 3 miles
Tuesday: skipped it! whoops!
Wednesday: 3 miles
Thursday: 5 miles, 10:10 pace
Friday: day off
Saturday: 10 miles, 1:46 including all water and “chew” breaks

I’m pretty happy with how my training has gone, and am planning on sticking with this training program after the race to try to improve my time more than I already have.

That’s it for now. Gotta go sell some chicken!
