Half Marathon Training Week 4

We successfully completed week 4 of half marathon training.  Nothing major to report.  We were blessed and Miss B from daycare will be coming over to watch the girls for us every Saturday morning so we can put in our long runs together.  We had a 7 mile run on Saturday that was fairly easy and ran a total of 17 miles this week.

My bursitis flared up after the run but that did not surprise me.  It also flared up today as I did a 45 minute walk.  The nice thing about it is that while I am in pain on occasion it has never been so bad I cannot run and it has stayed the same over time.  I have an appointment with an Orthopedic physician on Friday to see if there is anything we can do about it.  It is not terribly painful, just more of a nuisance at this point.  I will update next week on our plan after my appointment.  I hope he doesn't tell me I can't run because we will both be pretty bummed.

How we feel about training this week:  Pretty good, definitely on track for success.
