Half Marathon Training Week 12

So according to plans I could
  • lift once, 4 mi, 3 mi, 2 mi,  and 13.1 mi race
  • lift once, 4 mi, 3 mi, 30 min tempo,  and 13.1 mi race
  • 3 mi, 2 mi, 3 mi pace, and 13.1 mi race
  • 3 mi, 3 mi, 4 mi (2 x 1600 at 8:15), and 13.1 mi race (8:56 pace 1:57:10)
Here's what I did.

Monday: I ran 4.07 miles with the mom group. I forgot to start my watch back up at the halfway point when I put Ella on the potty but I'm guessing the distance since I ran to the car after too.

Tuesday: I ran 3.65 miles. My legs felt so heavy. I was running at 11:20 pace and that was like my top speed. I got into the swing of things after mile 2 though so my overall speed was 10:16. 

Wednesday: I ran 3.13 miles with Marie. We set out to do a 10 min pace but went slightly slower. Then the last quarter mile Ella was screaming so bad I just booked it to get home. I finished at a 7:30 pace and the overall speed was 10:05.

Thursday: I ran 3.13 miles with Kathryn at a 9:27 pace. I was in a hurry so we didn't add on. Ella was also a whiner again.

Friday:  Rest day (did push-ups)

Saturday: Rest day (did push-ups)

Sunday:  I ran the race! It was a half marathon but my garmin said 13.25 mi.  (Race recap to be posted later) 

Total Running Mileage: 27.39
Total other things: 7 push-up activities

Summary: I did a lot of push-ups. I ran a lot more than I guessed since I forced myself to take 2 rest days. This was a pretty good end to the 12 week training plan.

Now I have to figure out what comes next. 


  1. Whatever you did obviously worked since you placed so well! Great job!

    1. Thanks I would have done even better if I did speed work when training! So there is room for improvement.
