After a rough week 3, week 4 of my half marathon training ended on a much more positive note. Despite battling a sinus infection for most of the week, I successfully ran my second 10K, the Perfect 10 10K, seven minutes faster than I completed my first 10K back in July. The rush of such an accomplishment has me super excited to see what I can accomplish in the training weeks to come.
At the end of week 3, I vowed to incorporate more weight training and time on the elliptical into my training. I was successful in meeting one of those goals during week 4, but sadly, life and battling my sinus infection got in the way of being able to find time for the elliptical.
