Training Recap: Navy Air Force Half Marathon Week #7

I’m training to run my first half marathon this fall! I’ll be racing the Navy Air Force Half Marathon in September and recapping my training every Tuesday leading up to race day.

Okay, okay — three rest days do not look good! But it was just one of those weeks. I feel like I should do a happy dance simply because I logged all my runs one way or another. Friday’s run? 10pm at night. Womp, womp. But you know what made it all worth it? Sunday’s long run.

This week’s priorities? Strength! Foam rolling. Core. Can’t let the other things slide…Last week’s long run showed me that my hard is paying off, and I don’t want to lose momentum on that progress.

Here’s how week #7 breaks down…

  • Monday (8/10): Rest
  • Tuesday (8/11): Rest
  • Wednesday (8/12): 4.5 Birthday miles!
  • Thursday (8/13): 6.0 Biking miles + arm weights + core workout
  • Friday (8/14): 4.5 Miles
  • Saturday (8/16): Rest
  • Sunday (8/16): 7.0 Miles

Weekly Mileage: 16 Run, 6 Bike

  1. Victoria, I’m glad that you were able to get some rest and not beat yourself up over it; I think that’s really important (and often difficult) to do. I’m with you on the strength/core work; it’s really helping me, as well, so I’ve got to stick with it – GAH! What did you think about your new Rogas?? Hope you’re having a great day and kudos to your hard work, girl!

    1. Thank you, Tara!! I’ll be thinking of you as I chug through strength work this week! And I LOVE the rogas. Couldn’t help but plan the next color I’m going to get….that’s when you know they’re keepers!
