half marathon training: day 4

Wish I could come up with some more clever titles for these training entries but I just want to be sure that you’re easily keeping track of the days that are devoted to training. So for now: “Half Marathon Training: Day 4”. For both 5k trainers and half marathon trainers, today marks the last training day of week 1; so if you make it through your workout today, CONGRATULATIONS! You made it through one week! Only 9 more to go 🙂 Here’s what we’ve got:

Half Marathon: run or run/walk 4 miles. Doesn’t matter how long it takes you. Don’t stop ’til you get to 4.

5K: Brisk five-minute warmup walk. Then alternate 60 seconds of jogging and 90 seconds of walking for a total of 20 minutes. Contrary to the Half Marathoners, doesn’t matter how FAR you get, just make sure you don’t stop until you finish 20 minutes.

That’s it! We’re heading out right now to get our 4 miles in. Brad and I are running today on the beach. He claims it’s low tide. We’ll see about that….
