Half Marathon Training Plan progress:
I've been sticking with the cardio and running plan, but skipping a lot of the strength training lately.
Still up in the air about whether this weekend should be my last long run (either one 12-miler or back-to-back 10Ks) or if I do both, one this weekend and one next. I'm supposed to taper off the week before the race. I just don't know.
Nutritionally, I've been lax too, though I'm within my total calorie budget numbers. Just not distributing them well between carbs, protein and fats. Doesn't show on this chart:
But at least I'm still running a deficit. Shouldn't be a weight loss deficit, and that proves true on the scale.
Just need to keep chugging along. Can't believe I actually look forward to my run days. Used to be running was my least favorite cardio exercise.
