Week 2 Half Marathon Training

So this week was meant to be a few easy runs and a tempo run. I wasn’t able at the end of the week to get the long easy run in as planned due to family weekend stuff but planned to tick in an extra run on the Monday morning after (which I did and will be in next week)

Monday

Rest day and a lot of travelling!!

Tuesday

Got a longer morning run in as it’s a day off work but lots of kids things to do as it is school hols. Easy run. No particular pace or tempo targets. Just distance and duration.
