Happy father’s day + half marathon training week 1

This will be the shortest training cycle I’ve ever done. I’ll only have 6 weeks to recap on, but I have a decent base of ~15-20 miles a week, and think it is just enough time to get into half marathon shape. Super excited for the next 6 weeks!!!

SF Half Marathon training week 1 

Monday: 6 mile bike ride. I woke up early on Monday but wasn’t in the mood to run, so I opted to get a few miles in on my new bike. I was still getting use to the bike so didn’t ride too far – 6 very hilly miles in the Presidio. Those hills are killer!

Tuesday: 4 miles split in the Presidio trails and Marina waterfront. Went up and down the famous Lyon Street steps. I can definitely feel myself getting stronger on these hills!


Wednesday: 4 mile tempo run on the Marina waterfront. Straight forward and a solid sweat.

Thursday: REST

Friday: 3 miles easy on the Marina water.

Lastly, happy Father’s Day to my wonderful dad!! Me and my siblings put together this fun greeting for him – we are all over the world at the moment (Dad in China, brother in Boston, sissy in New York) but this brought us together ❤ Love you all!
