The Adventures of Half Marathon Training: Day 10

As predicted, getting out of bed this morning was terrible. It was one of those moments when I couldn’t decide if going back to bed and taking it easy for the rest of the day, or getting up and pushing through it was the better option. 

In the end I got up and did my interval workout. I’m still it sure if that was the best decision though, as it was absolutely no fun. Especially since we’re under another heat advisory. Awesome. 

I don’t particularly enjoy doing intervals when it’s hot. I always end up feeling miserable and today was no exception. 

The workout was a 10 minute warm up of easy running, followed by 3 minutes at threshold pace (which I didn’t pay attention to, I just ran at what felt like a slightly hard pace), 1.5 minutes of recovery (I walked), repeated 4 times.

 I only did 2 minutes for the very last interval though. I was going uphill and wanted to die, so yeah. I stopped after 2 minutes and then walked home. 

Workout splits.

Anyway, after a not so great workout a super tasty breakfast is very much necessary. Bacon and eggs make everything better.  πŸ˜‰

Tomorrow I’m supposed to do an easy 40 minute run and Thursday is a rest day, but I’m thinking I’m going to switch the days around, as I’m feeling a bit worn down and a rest day sounds great right about now. 

But as today is not a rest day, I’m off do do some stretching and ab workout!

    Probably a good idea to do the stretching and abs today. Stay active, but leave the running on the shelf for a day and you’ll probably come back stronger for it. The body strengthens by resting. Better to listen to how you feel than stick to a rigid plan!

      Haha that’s probably what I should have done, but I kinda did the opposite…I did my run, but skipped everything else. Oops. πŸ˜†

    Running in the heat can really take it out of ya! We have had some heat advisories as and it’s no joke. One day it almost took me down; I got dizzy and everything. So good for you knowing when to take it easy.
