Hey there! I hope you’re all having a nice and relaxing weekend! Once again I have not written a blog post in well….forever! As you may know, I’m an event planner at a college and February and March are full of our biggest events that take up a lot more time, hence the reason I was gone for a while.
Now, I’m not so busy at work and have some new and exciting changes coming up in my life, but I will write about all of that in a later post. 🙂 Today I want to focus on my half marathon training and how I’ve finally decided to add and incorporate speed work into my running routine.
Half Marathon Training
My next half is May 22nd and I’ve decided that this time around I really want to challenge myself and focus on speed and shaving my time in the half. Per usual I’m using a Hal Higdon Training Program. Below is the advanced training program that I’m following.
I was really nervous about starting speed and track workouts because, well it’s something new, and I’m not super experienced with speed work outs. I’m on week 5 and I absolutely love incorporating different types of speed work into my running routine! I can definitely tell that I’m getting faster and stronger.If you’ve been running for a while and are looking for something to switch up your running, I highly recommend speed work!
Question of the day:
What are some new things you’ve added to your running routine?
