Dublin Half Marathon Training

So long story short…after TWC cut off our internet, to repair the line, our wireless router crapped out. We are moving in 3 weeks and will get one for free through the apartment. So right now I’m crazy busy packing etc. and don’t have wifi so no posts.
There hasn’t been a whole load to report other than I’m glad that I took a break because everything is feeling pretty good right now. I was enjoying my break so much that when I thought I’d better check when I was due to start training for the Dublin Half Marathon in September, I discovered I’ve missed the first week of training…..face palm!

Its not such a big deal since overall I’m well enough conditioned (I think!!) to jump into week 2 as I’m following the Novice 1 program of Hal Hidgons = minimal running in this furnace of a city.  I’m planning to do a mix of road and treadmill running…probably more of the treadmill. That’ll be difficult but on the plus side I won’t get heatstroke or have to worry about getting hit by a car. The little bit of outdoor running I do will hopefully make me feel like superman when I run in Ireland as it’ll probably be cool by SC standards in September.

I’ll try post weekly training logs and that’ll be a whole lot easier in a few weeks J
