Fall Half Marathon Training: Week 8

Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

I'm Tina

I’m the owner of Carrots ‘N’ Cake as well as a Certified Nutrition Coach and Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner (FDN-P). I use macros and functional nutrition to help women find balance within their diets while achieving their body composition goals.


An in-depth, 4-week reverse dieting course for women who feel like their metabolism has slowed down, think they might have hormonal imbalance and can’t lose weight no matter what they do.

Another week of training is in the books and, whoa, we are getting close to race day. It’s a week from TODAY! I still need to figure out my plan of attack as far as workouts go for this upcoming week, but I’ll likely front-load it with harder workouts (i.e. CrossFit and mid-distance runs) and then taper off and rest as I get closer to the big day. I can’t believe my fall half marathon is almost here!!

  1. I love how you have incorporated Cross Fit with all of your training!!! I’m going to look back through all of your weeks of training, as I’d love to do something similar with my HIIT workouts. I hate to miss out on them during training season, so if I can incorporate them, all the better!!! 🙂

  2. I love reading about other mamas training!

    I’m training for my first marathon back post babies. I definitely need to incorporate strength training!

    Good luck on your race!!

  3. I found my way to your website via your interview on Girls Gone WOD – love all the workouts and nutrition information! I also live on the south shore and will be running in Norwell this weekend, looking forward to those hills 🙂 Good luck!

  4. Hi! What are your thoughts on the Brooks Half Zip that you are wearing in the photo? Does it keep you warm? I am looking for a windproof but warm half zip (if I have to layer that’s fine). Thanks for your help!

    1. Yea, it’s awesome! It’s definitely wind-resistant and a little thick, so I think it’ll do well in the cold temps. I’ve only worn it in the low-40s, and it was quite toasty!
