This is my running schedule for week 2 of my 1/2 marathon training. My legs are starting to come back to me a little bit and I was surprised at how good that 8 mile run felt. Plus I had my “magic pants” and the weather was soooooooo nice and sunny! It’s amazing how good it feels to only have to wear 1 shirt when you are used to wring several!
Here is the schedule:
Tuesday: 40 minute easy recovery jog
Thursday: 3 1 mile repeats. Remember that number from last weeks training? The “x” number? That’s our goal pace for this run. Try to hold that pace for 1 mile, then jog for about 800 meters, then repeat 2 more times.
Saturday: 8 miles at x + [45 seconds to 1:45]
And my favorite piece of running equipment this week was definitely my magic pants.

You inspire me to live better – so I feel better. Thank you!
More scoop on the running pants, please. Why do you like them? Where can you find them? I live in Alaska where the weather changes in the summer (when I can finally run outside). These look great.

Compression tights are SUPER tight and they don’t let your muscles bounce. Bouncing muscles (especially in the quads, hamstrings and glutes) fatigues the legs and causes extra muscle soreness. I got these from backcountry.com. I hope you like them!
