Rock ‘n’ Roll Virginia Beach Half Marathon Training Log – Week 6

This past week was another whirlwind week!  After getting home last Sunday evening from the Outer Banks, we were only home for five nights before we left for Kentucky for wedding #2 of the year.

We were in Kentucky this past weekend for one of my college friend's weddings

We were in Kentucky this past weekend for one of my college friend’s weddings.  It was a gorgeous outdoor reception held at a local state park.

Having two weddings two weekends in a row not only made for an exhausting week, but it also challenged me to fit everything I’d normally accomplish at home over two weekends into the five nights we were here at home.  Between laundry and other household chores, as well as working on paperwork for our new house, little time was left for training after I got home from work each day.  But I was up for the challenge, and had a very productive and successful training week given how crazy it was!

Mon 6/2 – 2.37 mile run in the neighborhood

Tues 6/3 – 2.40 mile powerwalk on the treadmill at varying inclines, glutes, arms, shoulders, back, abs

Wed 6/4 – 3.10 mile treadmill run, 0.26 mile cool down walk, abs, glutes, legs

Thurs 6/5 – Rest day

Fri 6/6 – Rest day

Sat 6/7 – 3.10 mile treadmill run, 0.46 mile cool down walk

Sun – Rest day

Total Weekly Mileage – 11.69 miles (3.85 miles more than week 5)

Total Half Marathon Training Mileage – 73.27 miles

This coming week I’ll be getting back on track with my training plan.  Having known that I’d be out of town two weekends in a row, I forged forward a bit back during week 4 with my long run mileage, when I ran 6.68 miles.  Next coming weekend I’m scheduled to run 8 miles, and I’m crossing my fingers that it goes well since its been a couple of weeks since my last long run.

This week isn’t going to be easy physically, but I’m up for the challenge.  I’m always after improvement, and even if my speed is slow going this week as I work towards getting back into a regular routine, I know that the progress will be worth it in the end.

  1. All these weddings sound like fun! Hope you get your training schedule back on track!

  2. Nice job staying on track! yes the summertime always gets crazy but you tackled it successfully!

  3. I’m coming home from a week of wedding fun and I’m definitely ready to get back on track! I walked a lot, but that was pretty much it.

    Looks like beautiful weddings 🙂

    I have to constantly change my training days when I have big photography days or weddings… its tough to rearrange, but gotta make it work.

  5. What a wonderful weekend!

    Harry and I ALWAYS have something going on, not even just on the weekends! We make sure to put training well before mostly everything, but each other. 😉

    Way to go on keeping up with you training – even though it has been busy. The wedding looked beautiful! I am still trying to figure out how to balance it all – this summer will be a test for sure, but I think doable with proper planning.
