Training Recap: Navy Air Force Half Marathon Week #9

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.

Tuesday’s run was on a great new route through a hilly neighborhood I should take advantage of more often. On the other hand, Thursday’s run seemed like it would never end, and Sunday’s 10K wasn’t much better. The miles just didn’t tick off easily, and I was too concerned with how slow the minutes counted by on my Garmin.

On the bright side, I did a better job incorporating strength work this week, particularly for my core, glutes and hips. Every little bit counts, right? Now it’s Tuesday, and I’m already nervous for Week #10’s 9-miler, but I’m learning to trust the training. I’ll be running in New Orleans this weekend and squeezing my long run in on Saturday before the evening wedding. 🙂

Here’s how week #9 breaks down…

Weekly Mileage: 16.2 Miles

What was your last week of training?
