NYC Half Marathon Training Week 8: 2/9-2/15

Here's a recap of last week's workouts:

Monday 2/9 - PiYo Sweat
Tuesday 2/10 - 4.5 mile run
Wednesday 2/11 - 40 minute run
Thursday 2/12 - 3 mile run with a friend.
Friday 2/13 - T25 Beta Rip't Circuit 
Saturday 2/14 - 10 mile long run
Sunday 2/15 - Rest day

I would say this was another ok week. I did get in PiYo and a T25 workout this week so I'm happy about that. However, I did have to skip out on a shorter run on Saturday to do my 10 mile long run. I decided to make the switch when I found out that the weather on Sunday was going to be in negative degrees with the windchill. I'm so glad that I changed my long run day to Saturday as it was definitely a lot colder on Sunday, bone chilling cold! I really just want the cold weather to go away. I am looking forward to warmer temperatures and can't wait till I can wear a tank top outside again.

The #prAna #sweatpink #TaketheLeap yoga challenge has been going well. I've been doing at least 5 minutes a day and learning new poses. I must say that some of poses are pretty challenging for me due to my inflexibility but I'm trying my best. 

How was your week?


  1. Great job last week! Hopefully the cold weather goes away! Nice job with the yoga challenge too!

  2. Thanks Caroline! haha yeah, the cold and snow is not fun! I'm really glad that I'm doing the challenge. Even just 5 minutes a day has helped me.

  3. I'm also running the NYC Half - this weather is really killing my training plan! Ran 8 miles on a treadmill today and thought I was going to pull my hair out. :) I'm inspired by your midweek runs, though - will have to try and get out more this week!

  4. Awesome that you will be running the NYC Half too!! 8 miles on the treadmill is tough! Great that you got it done! Hope you will be able to get out more this week!

  5. Great training week! That is some awesome pace timing on that 10 miler too!
    Have to also say, you get to run through some pretty country, those pictures look great!

  6. Thanks! Yes, I do feel lucky that I'm in an area with beautiful places to run. :)
