Now that the holidays are over though I don't have any more excuses to eat pie, cake, cupcakes, cookies, ice cream, candies, and chocolates. I was really enjoying the fun distractions and extra time off of work but now it has ended.
My training for my first half marathon is going well. I was able to get some quality runs in, even during the holidays.
This is how my runs have gone recently.
Jan. 1 - 3 mile easy run. Today was the first run of the year.
Dec. 31 - 12 Yasso800s all at 3:55 or faster. Last run of 2013.
Dec. 29 - 1 mile easy run. Did this after I had done 40min of cross-training.
Dec. 28 - 1 mile up a steep hill. Very hard and hopefully one day I'll be able to run up it non-stop.
Dec. 24 - Christmas Eve run. Did a good hill run with some hill repeats added in.
I have 12 days until my Boney Mountain race so I'm just about as ready as I'm going to be. I'll do one more run this weekend and than take it easy till race day.
