Half-Marathon Training: Week Two

Five miles in the bag. It wasn't easy in 90 degree weather, but it's done. Now both my left knee and right foot are sore. I've nursed injuries in both of these areas before. I'm taking today off, to give them a rest. We'll see what tomorrow brings.

Based on the five-miler, I've decided that I'll definitely be running the Denver Half-Marathon. It's more expensive, but it gives me enough time to train without getting injured, I hope. Next weekend I'm running the prestigious Brule Day 5K with Nate. We'll be in town for Brule Day festivities and I figure I may as well continue the tradition. I've run the 5K three out of the four years that we've lived in Denver. Last year I was far too pregnant to run.
