Owens Corning Half Training Recap: Week 12

It’s done!!! I’ll be sharing a race recap later this week, but I wanted to post the final week of training leading up to race day. Spoiler: I did it! I got my PR. I beat my A goal and ran a 2:20:29 with an average pace of 10:39 for a 16 minute PR. I’m over the moon. It was a beautiful day to race.

Real talk: my right knee is pretty stiff this morning from a peeved IT band, but I am more than happy to rest. I’m particularly looking forward to sleeping in a couple mornings and see how I feel in a couple days.

The view from Thursday’s run!
  • Monday: Pure Barre
  • Tuesday: Skipped the scheduled workout (8 x 800m at 10k pace) for 4 easy miles to baby the ITB issue
  • Wednesday: Pure Barre
  • Thursday: 3.2 easy miles with my brother
  • Friday: Rest day
  • Saturday: 3 mile shakeout run downtown
  • Sunday: 13.1 miles at the Owens Corning Half Marathon
  • Weekly mileage = 23 miles

Iā€™m linking up Courtney @ Eat Pray Run DC‘s training recap.
