Week 7 Half Marathon Training Recap

Appropriately enough, week 7 included a 7 mile long run.  Did my long run on Saturday with Jennifer, and so adjusted my schedule to take Friday as a rest day and did not do my cross-training on the bike this week.  I’m past halfway, and I have more days marked off of my training schedule than are remaining.  5 weeks until the half marathon! Next weekend I am running an 8K in Salisbury, so that will be my “long run” next week (5 miles).  Here’s the numbers.

Starting weight – 282.2
Running (4.5, 4.5, 7) – 16 miles
Yoga – 60 minutes
Total miles – 16 miles
Ending weight – 281.8 (0.4 pound loss).

I know, I loss is a loss is a loss…. but I have to be honest.. not happy.

  • About Me

    I am a recent graduate in Food Science (NC State, 2009) and I work for a major food manufacturing company. I love food, but I can no longer eat anything that crosses my path. About 24 months ago I begin a serious struggle to get my obesity under control and reduce my chances of developing Type II diabetes. Since September of '09 I have lost 50 pounds and I still have a long ways to go. I've started eating better and exercising more, including taking up running.
