Half Marathon Training

I have a new friend, named Hal Higdon.  I'm not really sure how much I like him yet....I think he's trying to kill me. lol :) I started out using his Intermediate Half Marathon Training program a few weeks ago.  It's been going well so far.  I feel like I might be doing a little too much too fast.  But it's not supposed to be easy either.  So I think as long as I don't have any real, serious pain....I'll just keep going.  I extended it a little so that I could ease into it.

Here's what I've been doing:
Week 1
Monday: (work) 3 mile run (9:05)
Tuesday: 6 mile run (9:28)/bodypump
Wednesday: 5x400 @ 5k pace (2.35mi/9:34)
Thursday: 3 mile run (9:18)/bodypump
Friday: (work) 3 mile run (9:25)/yoga
Saturday: 2 miles (9:25)/bodypump
Sunday: rest

Week 2
Monday: (work) 3 mile run (9:09)
Tuesday: 5 mile run (9:29)/bodypump
Wednesday: 5 miles (9:32)
Thursday: 5 miles (9:15)/bodypump
Friday: (work) 5x400 @ 5k pace (9:45)/yoga
Saturday: 3 miles (9:32)
Sunday: rest

Week 3
Monday: (work)3 miles (9:13)
Tuesday: 6 miles (9:29)
Wednesday: 5x400 (8:50)
Thursday: 30 minute tempo (3.22mi/9:22)/bodypump
Friday: (work) PAL 5k (3.11mi/26:31min/8:28)
Saturday: 1 mile (9:31)/bodypump
Sunday: rest

Week 4
Monday: (work) 3.52 miles (9:23)
Tuesday: 6 miles (9:32)/bodypump
Wednesday: 2.04 mi (9:19) 20 minute tempo
Thursday: 4 mi (9:30)/yoga/bodypump

And we are up to date :) I may just update this post as training progresses instead of a million boring posts.
