My Asics Training Plan and Brooklyn Half!

Oh man, it’s week three of my Asics training plan for the United Airlines Half (NYC Half) and I am pumped up about it. Now last week I didn’t get anything done sadly because I was running around planning for my birthday but no fear, I’m back on track and ready to run.

This is the “getting faster” phase of the training plan which means some of the runs would need to be completed at a faster pace.

This weeks schedule calls for:
                         Today: 3 mile jog (16:39 pace)                        
Tomorrow: 4.5 Fast (12:35 – 13:41 pace)
Thursday: Rest
Friday: 3 mile jog (16:39 pace)
Saturday: Rest
Sunday: 4.5 Fast (12:35 – 13:41 pace)
Monday: Rest

In addition to these runs I’ve started before that I am incorporating various workouts. I am strength training on Mondays and Thursdays, swimming on Saturdays and Yoga Monday – Friday. Does this sound like a good training plan?  I hope so, but we’ll see on race day.

The AirBnB Brooklyn Half opens tomorrow! This year is $65 dollars, which is $10 more than last year, I was contemplating running this year, but I know I need to qualify for the marathon next year by completing the 9+1 and I want to do the 5-borough series so I really don’t have a choice.

Also check out this huge mug I got, it’s super cute and I use it for everything. Well mostly water but still, it makes me want to keep refilling because I constantly want to keep drinking out of it.

Is anyone else planning to do the Brooklyn half? Is anyone doing the NYC Half? I mean we could chat and meet each other and all of the fun stuff. And isn’t my mug super cute?
