I know last week was the start of my half marathon training, but I already have to put it on hold. I knew this going into it because tomorrow I leave for New York City, and will be there until Saturday. Kind of puts a damper on training.
For the training program to work out perfectly, this would have been week one of training. Knowing I wouldn’t be able to run this week, I started last week and figured I’d continue with the program next week. That seemed like the best solution. I know I could have taken my running shoes and stuff with me, but this week is going to be used for finding an apartment. I want to focus my attention on that, and not worry about fitting workouts in.
So today I ran 30mins as if it were a normal training week and a normal Monday. I was really tired though, so I had to take a lot of walking breaks. I ended up running 2.76 miles at a 10:52 average pace. Not bad considering I had to drag my lazy ass to the gym, but I would have liked to have a better run before taking the time off. Oh well!
