Day # -23 Training updates

Slowly but surely getting there!

So its been a while since I updated the blog regarding my half-marathon training. I was pleasantly surprised that people were enquiring about it offline since they didn’t see any updates on the blog. How nice is that?

For the last 3 weeks I have been religiously following a training plan and that’s good news because the plan seems to have changed every other week in the past. I go to the gym five days a week at 7:30 for an hour, whether to run on the treadmill or do some yoga or ‘pump iron’ as they call it. As a result I am feeling much more confident about my preparation for the race day.

Last weekend I ran on a 10km route at 10kmph and was pleasantly surprised to note how fast my body recovered. Not only was I fully functional that day, but I felt that my muscles were back to usual within 36 hours. This is significant progress from where I started. In other words, I’m in the “normal” performance range now.

I had reached the 8km milestone on July 28. One might wonder what I had been doing for the past 8 weeks. Well, my training did slow down due to social commitment. However, I worked on improving stamina, recovery time and most importantly the speed.

This weekend I am going to run 15km in the morning at a speed of at 10kmph. I have to get used to outdoor conditions since my race is going to be at 8:00, and the season is changing quite a lot.

And for those of you who missed the previous update on shoes, I settled for Asics. They are a nice pair and, being brand new, I treat them quite delicately. 🙂
