Happy Easter to all of you.
Last Friday was my running anniversary. 4 Years ago on that date I put on my running shoes and went for my first run in years. And I haven’t stopped running since. Sometimes a lot, sometimes not so much but I never stopped. When I started this running thing I would never have thought I would still be doing it today but I do.
In these past 4 years I have run 465 times. I ran 2.467 km (1541 miles) and ran for 296 hours and 31 minutes. But nothing shows more than pics so here are few of the past 4 years.
My first 5K:
Tomorrow it’s April 1 and my half marathon training starts. When are you going to do this you ask?
Well on October 22nd but I’m using a 28 week plan and it’s 29 weeks till half marathon date. It’s a very safe schedule that builds up the mileage slowly. Every week has 1 tempo run, 1 easy run, 1 long run and every other week I do a speedwork session. I’m putting my running first for the past couple of months and if I need an extra rest day I will “sacrifice” one of my cross training days. The past 4 weeks will be the thoughest and those weeks I don’t do cross training. I also put some races in my schedule to see how my time on a 5K or 10K will be so I can estimate a finishing time on the half marathon.
Weekly workout review:
