Akron Half Marathon Training: Week One

I go into every training plan giving it my 100% undivided attention. There is no surprises on what it coming up, it's all out in front of me. All I have to do it put in the work. 

This week and the following two are going to be crazy with our anniversary and my birthday, but I am determined to make the time to do everything I need to do. 

This week, I had five runs that totaled 27 miles. For June, I have 48.1 miles and 520 miles towards my 2015 goal of 1,200 miles. 

I also did a 20 minute core workout and a half hour kettle bell workout. Let me tell you, the lady on the kettle bell DVD was very mean to me. I haven't done any sort of upper body workout in almost 10 years. Yeah, I felt it! 

Friday night I got to spectate the Riverview 5K. It was Joe's first ever 5K! He has done a one mile, 6.6K and a half marathon before, but he was excited for a 5K! I also FINALLY got to meet Gretchen from Gretch Runs and her fiancĂ©e, Dan. 

It poured the entire race and of course stopped as soon as everyone finished. 

Today Joe and I are traveling to Columbus for the WWE Money in the Bank pay-per-view! It was a spur of the moment idea and we are so excited! Plus, we went outlet shopping on Saturday for my birthday! I celebrate all month for my birthday, but this year is a little hard since my birthday is on a Wednesday and I have to work. Booooooooo. 

I'm excited to race the Peace Love Run 5K next weekend! This race is my current 5K PR so I'm hoping for good things!
