Half Marathon Training: Week 2


February 10, 2013 by Sarah

This past week was a busy one – I celebrated my birthday on Tuesday and Mark spent most of the week in Florida for work. I tried to stick with my routine as much as possible. I was successful in getting my workouts in, but had no motivation to cook!

Here are my workouts and meals for week 2 of my half marathon training

  • Monday: 30 minutes strength training, elliptical for 10 minutes
  • Tuesday: 3 mile birthday run in the snow! 29:02, 9:38 pace
  • Wednesday: 20 minutes strength training, bike for 15 minutes
  • Thursday: 4 miles on the treadmill; 37:25, 9:21pace
  • Friday: 30 minutes strength training
  • Saturday: 5 mile run; 49:40, 9:55 pace
  • Sunday: Rest Day!

Weekly mileage: 12 miles, Total Mileage: 23 miles

My meals were not super exciting this week. Since Mark was gone for most of the week, I ate a lot of stuff that was quick and easy to prepare. For whatever reason, I didn’t feel like cooking this week… so I didn’t! I’m looking forward to cooking more this week and was happy to have a break from cooking last week.

  • Monday: Pork stir fry
  • Tuesday: Turkey burger on a salad
  • Wednesday: Turkey sub with lots of veggies (from Subway)
  • Thursday: Turkey and ham sandwich (yes, essentially a repeat of Wednesday…)
  • Friday: Out to dinner for my birthday!
  • Saturday: Celebrating my birthday with a girl’s night!
  • Sunday: Pizza and salad

Can’t believe we are starting another week already!  I’m aiming for 15 miles next week and 3 days of strength training.  It should be a good week for workouts and hopefully I’ll have some great recipes/meal ideas to share as well.

Do you have days were you just don’t feel like cooking?  

I know a lot of you are training for upcoming races – how is your training going?

    I don’t feel like cooking most days! I really thought as a I got older and had kids that would change. It has not.

    I love your blog! I started mine about 2 months ago based on my goal of running a thousand miles this year.

    Hope you check it out!
