Norah O’Donnell, CBS News anchor, is training for her first half-marathon (a little over 13 miles) and today she shared a typical week of training with the readers at Self, where she’s just started blogging.
Her biggest challenge? Fitting in training time while sometimes pulling 12 and 14 hour days at work (she should probably check in with Ariana Huffington to get some life/work balance perspective). Twice in her “typical” week she had to take rest days that seemed as much about accommodating her schedule as they were an actual need for rest. Though sometimes those things go hand-in-hand.
And still, O’Donnell logged, by our count, an impressive 20-some miles and even strength training to top it all off. Not bad for such a busy anchorwoman.
Best of luck to O’Donnell. We’ll be waiting to hear the race results.
