Getting a MUCH needed day off today. I only worked Sat, Sun, and Mon - but Sun, I got worked. I feel like I already accomplished the half-marathon with how much I was running around work all day. I even had the worst headache imaginable from having to use my memory skills all day. whining...
So last night I decided to brew up my own half marathon training schedule. I've been researching different ones from different sources for inspiration and added a little bit of my own personal taste to it. I probably should have started heavy about 3 weeks ago, and although I still manage to work out every day (with a couple rest days) I think I will be ok as long as I stick to it.
Without further ado, here is how I am training for the Hibiscus Half Marathon!
*Disclaimer: I am not a running, training, or fitness professional (yet). This is just my personal training schedule.*
Like I said, I probably should've given myself longer than 7 weeks, but I think it will be ok. One thing I'm nervous about, is the trail runs up the steep hill of Diamond Head, and I'm not used to running hills so that will definitely be involved in my training. I picked Sundays as my rest day because I will be in the midst of my work week, and Game of Thrones comes on that night.
I will be checking in weekly (hopefully daily) with my training and will also include recipes and vlogs along the way. I'm super excited about this upcoming event! Not only is it for a good cause, but I will finally be able to cross it off my bucket list :) Yay me!
I've been seeing a lot of positive reviews on a product called ENERGYbits and am contemplating giving it a try. I also am trying to find the perfect protein powder for my shakes. RUNNERS - any suggestions?
Have you ever trained for a long distance run? If so how did it go? Use any supplements for the race? Let me know if you have any tips for me :)
