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.

Tuesday 9/24 – Rest day

Wednesday 9/25 – 3.37 mile treadmill run, chest, back, shoulders, arms, glutes

  1. Getting sick during training is the absolute worst. I tend to just try and listen to my body and do whatever it is telling me — and take care of myself so by the time I’m healthy I can kick it into gear again.

    • I couldn’t agree more! I hadn’t planned for two rest days in a row, but knew that if I wanted to do well at Sunday’s race that my body needed the extra rest. I’m so glad I listened to my body, because the extra rest paid off!
