The Adventures Of Half Marathon Training: Day 79

At least I think? I’m not doing a very good job of keeping track, huh? πŸ˜‰

Anyways, it was a beautiful morning to do some running! After a batman mug full of coffee that is. For real though, fall running is my favorite (don’t actually hold me to that statement, once we get some snow I’m never going to shut up about how that’s my favorite).

Today called for a interval workout! Thankfully they weren’t long intervals, so I actually got to enjoy the run today haha. I’m also super glad I took an extra rest day yesterday. I felt sooo much better today and I think my workout was definitely better because of it!

My 5k time just keeps on falling! This is still not my actual fastest 5k time, but it is the fastest 5k I’ve done with this watch. My actual fastest time was a little under 35 minutes, but I am glad I’m finally getting it done in under 40 again, even if it is only by a few seconds. I’m definitely improving and that’s super awesome!

After my run I had to ice my shin. It’s feeling a little sore again, but I’m thinking it’s nothing a little ice and a lot of time in compression socks can’t handle. While the icing was happening I ate a quick sandwich, then once I was done I did a little strength training. By that I mean I did a Jillian Michaels’ kettel bell video and completely killed my hips, thighs, and even a little bit of my upper body, but that’s kinda the point, right? πŸ™‚

Ok guys, I literally cannot get over this album. Revolution Radio has been my playlist for pretty much everything since it came out 4 days ago. I’m absolutely in love with it and I’m probably going to end up sharing every song on here. Haha I told you I’m in full on fangirl mode and it’s not going to stop anytime soon, so buckle up and brace yourself or get off the ride now. πŸ˜‰

Bang Bang was the first radio single (and is the second track) from Revolution Radio. I along with a multitude of other Green Day fans, tuned in to some radio station in California (and I feel bad that I don’t remember which one, but not bad enough to look it up) on August 9th to hear the first new song from Green Day in 4 years. After hearing Bang Bang for the first time I had very high hopes for Revolution Radio and I definitely was not disappointed! πŸ™‚

I guess I’m done gushing about Green Day. For now. It’s never going to actually stop.

    Today was my group training beginning of week 6. We did 40 minutes at race pace; 20 minutes out and 20 minutes back. My pace this time was 13:33 I’m usually at around 15 something. Tomorrow is an easy aerobic 3 mile run. Then a paper to finish..πŸ˜• Keep up the good work!
