Tuesday Training - Week 9

I've been training with CARA (Chicago Area Runners Association) in preparation for the ZOOMA Chicago half marathon on August 10.  This is the first time I've stuck with group training, and I'm finding I actually look forward to the long runs with the group.  From novices to marathon veterans, CARA is a great way to train for a half marathon or marathon.  The group leaders are seasoned and knowledgable and chatting with fellow runners makes the miles go faster.   CARA also has organized midweek and speed runs, and even though I can't make it to those, I make sure to get my miles in so that I'm ready for the long runs.

So here's a look at my week 9 training:
Monday - 5 miles along the lakefront in Michigan
Wednesday - 5 miles in the pouring rain
Friday - 5 miles around the neighborhood
Saturday - 9 miles with CARA

How's your training going?

  1. Great consistent training, nice you have the group for your run longs.

  2. Glad you're enjoying the group! I always say I'm going to join one but never do. Lone wolf here. I bet it is a nice change of pace though!
