mountains out of molehills

Before I forget:  does anyone know a good half-marathon training app to use? I’m going to need one pretty soon, so thanks in advance.

I got up pretty early today to hit the gym before having labs drawn at 8 a.m. (because I knew I’d be starving when I finished that, and I didn’t want to wait for breakfast).

I started the Couch to 10k training plan (starting at week 9, since I just finished the 5k plan).

10-11-16

I’m a bit disappointed that I didn’t manage that 3rd interval as planned, but I’m still really happy with this workout. My legs are still a little sore from the climbing in the 5k this weekend, so this was definitely a tough workout.

Onward and upward!
