Hey guys! I just typed the date of this post and realized that we’re almost halfway through February. Geez! I hope you are having a fabulous Friday.
Last night, B and I went to a local Sushi placed called Ru San’s for dinner. I decided to change things up and ordered a Udan noodle bowl instead of sushi. The specific bowl I picked had 2 types of tofu, spinach, cabbage, onion, green peppers, mushrooms and noodles with a miso soup broth. It was so good but also gigantic and super hot (temperature hot). I’m looking forward to leftovers today!
Half Marathon Training
While this is technically my 5th week of half marathon training, it is my first official week of the Hal Higdon half marathon training plan. Woo hoo! My schedule will look like this for each week:
- Monday- rest
- Tuesday- short run
- Wednesday- cross train
- Thursday- short run
- Friday- rest
- Saturday- cross train
- Sunday- long run
This week my runs were 3 miles each and I’m averaging ~13:40 min/mile. B is roughly following the same plan except he has run several half marathons before and he’s a way better runner than I am. We ran together on Tuesday after work and it was a great way to decompress! My long run on Sunday will be 4 miles. Please don’t laugh at me but I’ve never run that far before! I’m really looking forward to building mileage and continuing with strength training.
In case you’re wondering about my various orthopedic issues…. my knee has been completely fine this whole time. My foot still gives me problems when I wear flats or flip flops, but I’ve made it a point to stick to supportive shoes as I increase my running.
I am off to work but I hope you guys have a fantastic day!
What are you up to this weekend?
What’s your favorite thing to order when you go to a sushi place? I usually get a rainbow roll.
