Well here I am again. Back at it. I am running again, and this time I am CHOOSING to train for a 1/2 marathon. Sounds a little crazy, and it probably is, but why the heck not!!
That's better, I am only 1/2 crazy. The last running group I joined I only made it to 14km, and I probably missed as many runs as I attended. This time I am doing things differently. I am starting this time around with a different attitude. This is something I WANT to do, and something I am choosing to do. Even though I took 8 weeks off, I still have some running under my belt, so I am starting off in better shape than the first time around.
WOW!! 21km, 13.1miles.... doesn't sound far to drive, but it sure sounds like a long way when you are going to be running it!! Yikes! Definitely 1/2 crazy!
This weekend I ran a 10km race. I am only up to 7km in my training program (week 2), but I figured why not?!?! it was in town, so it made sense. I was able to run for about 7km, then I was dead and needed a few walk breaks. finished the race in 52.17 minutes, my goal was under 55 minutes so I really have no complaints, other than it hurt!! LOL the best part is, It made me excited about racing. I was looking all last night for another run that will fit in with my training schedule. Looks like it will be the Canada day 15km, and I'll see what else I can find!
So stay tuned. I will try to keep you updated on my progress, and some more delicious recipes I plan on trying out to fuel all of this running!!
