There are a mere 3 weeks between me and my first ever half marathon. Yes, I know, it’s terrifying. So, in order for me to be able to complete the 13.1 miles around Portsmouth, I need to get serious with my training. I mean, really serious. No more slacking off, no more running 2 miles instead of 3 or 4 because I got up too late, and no more Sunday morning sofa time!

Last night, Steve and I hit the gym to do a treadmill session. I need to work on my speed and find it really difficult to do that outside.

30 minute treadmill workout

0-10 mins at 6mph
10-12 mins at 6.5mph
12-14 mins at 6.6mph
14-16 mins at 6.7mph
16-18 mins at 6.8mph

18-20 mins at 6.9mph
20-22 mins at 7mph

22-24 mins at 6.9mph
24-26 mins at 6.8mph
26-28 mins at 6.7mph

28-30 mins at 6.6mph
cool down

We then hit the matt to work on some abs then stretched it out on the powerplates. I was exhausted and sweaty by the end of it!
