Am I really halfway through my current half marathon training cycle?!? Its really hard to believe just how quickly time is flying by! Before I know it, it’ll be September 6th and I’ll be crossing the start line of my fifth half marathon!
This past week, I enjoyed a cutback in my mileage. After running an eight miler last Sunday, it was nice to only run a 5k as my long run this past weekend. This week I’ll be increasing my long run to 10 miles, so the break in mileage this past weekend was needed both physically and mentally.
I ran two races this past week. Thursday evening I ran my second virtual race, the All 4 Run Virtual 4 Mile Race, and then on Saturday I ran the annual Firecracker 5k. Its always exciting to run two races within only a couple of days!
