My plan to get there is to drop some of the extra weight, run more, run faster and use this baby that I got for Christmas (Costco has them on sale for $219.99):
My next 1/2 Marathon is October 9th - in Long Beach. I plan on being ready to tackle that goal by then.
My first race ever was a mud run:
I did a 5K after that:
Then came the 1/2 that changed everything...
The Turkey Trot...love the 10K distance, for a beginning slow poke runner like me, I had a great time...
I dig training plans, if you get to know me better, you will see that I like numbers...I can get to be a freak about them, but I really do like having a plan on the calender to stick to. I have the occasional mishap, but for the most part if it is on there, it will happen. When I started out, I used the Hal Higdon's Super Novice Training plan, now I have switched over to a combination of that pattern and knowing what my body can take after a long run.
This picture looks like I am trying to say something...I am even wearing a cotton shirt and headphones...things have changed. I do still wear the leggins under the running shorts mostly since I have a lot of flab on my legs (which the leggings cover) and I am not bold enough to go full fledge with just leggings, so I use the running shorts to cover the rest...plus they have a handy pocket in the front.
