6 weeks to 1/2 marathon – Whoopsies!

on September 6, 2012

UPDATED*

Oh my goodness – I just checked my calendar to see how far away my next race is! For some reason I was thinking I still had at least 2 months to train … try 6 weeks!!! My weekends have been jam-packed with craziness and I have not done a long run (more than 4 miles) since my glorious DC run! I am serious trouble!!! I hate to rush increasing mileage, but I have to do something! Thankfully, we have no weekend travel plans for the rest of this month!

My plan is to get my long runs done on Saturdays – more than likely on the lovely Tobacco Trail , there is a trail entry right near SyncStudio. It’s a great place to train for long runs because if you go out a certain distance, you have to come back; so it makes you cover your planned mileage! I will have to make some sacrifices (I don’t wanna)  in order to get this training done.

My typical Sync schedule is:

Monday: 545 am Total Body Circuit

Tuesday: off

Wednesday: 545 am Total Body Circuit and 700 pm Cycling

Thursday: double-down of 1 hour Cycling then 1 hour of Cycling-TRX combo

Friday: 545 am Total Body Circuit and 715 Cycle-Sculpt

Saturday mornings: (when we are in town) I do another double down of 1 hour Cycling and 1 hour TRX.

Sunday mornings: double down! 900 TRX and 1015 CycleSculpt

Since I plan to run Tues/Thurs/Sat. I will have to scale back on my Sync-ing..here’s how I feel about that!

This will be SUPER SATURDAY SEPTEMBER!!

SO, this Saturday I have  a 6 miler on tap (my 6 miler in Atlanta did not go so well, haha)

Saturday (9/15)- 8 miler, will need to be early in the am because I am in a wedding that afternoon, YAY RACHEL!!! Did this one on Wednesday morning before work…..made for an interesting day!

Saturday (9/22) – 9 miler – my go for 10 on this one

Saturday (9/29) – 10 miler

Sunday (10/7) – 12 miler

Saturday (10/13) – 8 miler

Sunday (10/21) – RACE DAY!

….I wish I had a workout buddy here!
