Last Minute Training for 3M

I’m an idiot. The 3M Half Marathon is right around the corner and I have barely trained. That’s not entirely true, I just haven’t trained much in the last few weeks. I was doing a really good job about keeping up with it for the first 2 months or so, running 3 times a week, but even then I wasn’t doing any cross training. Now, with the race looming just 14 days away, I’m a little worried. I’m confident that I’ll be able to finish, but I think this will be a low point in my running. I’ll be able to say things in the future like, “Well at least it wasn’t as bad as the 2019 3M!”

Anyway, tonight I did 3.4 miles, 10:26 pace and almost all in Zone 5 (yikes!). Not great, but at least I did it. I came home and did 10 Step Overs on each leg, 2 pull ups and 2 dips. Pitiful, right? I will get better. Tomorrow will be strength training and calisthenics.
