Running on the Etowah track to practice my pacing
The half marathon is all about pacing. If you burn all your energy in the first few miles, you will not have any left for the rest of the race. This is why slow and steady wins the race
Here I am running to get my pacing under control. This should help me pace for the half marathon.
Doing planks to strengthen core
Your core is one of the most important key factors to have while running.
Here I am doing planks to strengthen my core. Keeping a strong core will help me keep a good center of balance.
Meeting with my facilitator to go over my workout for the day
Joe Robinson has been coaching me as a runner since I was a freshman. He has helped me improve greatly as a runner.
I met with Joe Robinson in Etowah’s weight room. I need to strengthen my muscles so I can last for 13.1 miles

Fri. 6:30-7:45 p.m.
Sun. 3:00-5:00 p.m.
Activity: Beginning one of my many long runs to prepare for my half marathon by starting off with a nine-mile run
Commentary: the half marathon is 13.1 miles long and in order for me to prepare my body for that long of a race I will be doing extra mileage on top of my track workouts. Even on days where I have practice I will be running up to 6 miles extra of whatever I did at practice to get the endurance I need for the half marathon.
