Week two of my half marathon training was unbelievably better than my first week back post IT-band injury and sinus infection! Even though my pace was between 10-11 min miles, I’m okay with that. I’m training for distance not speed.
To keep things interesting I ran at different times of day (morning, afternoon, and evening), switched up my route each time, and listened to podcasts. Lately I’ve been enjoying Running on OM. Not only do I love the host, Julia Hanlon, voice and positive attitude, but I also thoroughly enjoy her guests! It’s actually inspired me to start a podcast myself someday… 🙂
As I’m gaining distance and cardio, I will also make sure to build those powerhouse muscles to help me keep and build my stamina and strength.
And now for week 3!
