Half Marathon Training - Week 12

I barely ran last week, so I rather cringe to say it's half marathon training, but still, I am in training!

10k medals to the left; half marathon in center left; endurance horse back riding mileage center right; marathon far right

One great thing that happened last week was that my husband hung up a medal holder for me. It's in front of my treadmill. I'll be starting marathon training after this half marathon cycle and I daresay I'll be spending a lot of time on the treadmill this winter.

I'm not going to do my usually daily recap for each of my runs. I ran 3 times. All on the treadmill, all an easy run/walk pace around 14:00/mi.

I was taking it easy for a couple of reasons. 1) I wanted to be sure I hadn't injured myself when a bruise popped up on my right outer thigh just above my knee. 2) I was going out of town to ride an endurance ride and was resting up for that.

The endurance ride didn't happen. We drove out there and were there, but the ride itself never happened. I'll post on my endurance blog about that in the next few days after I have time to process it myself.

Fortunately, I never had a single issue from the bruise. I don't know why it popped up, but it's gone and I'm going back to training.

This week, I've already missed Monday's run, but I'll continue on with training the rest of the week.

The Iron Horse Half Marathon is just 2 1/2 weeks away. I paid to have my run packet mailed to me, so I already have that. Saves me from having to do the out of town packet pick up thing the morning of.
