About 5 weeks ago, I was getting sad because I had started gaining weight even though I was still running (granted it was only 1-2 times a week). So I decided to train for a 10k, which is 6.2 miles. I got about 2 weeks into it when I ran my first 4 mile distance and I talked to the bestie (Crystal) about it. That's when she told me that she wanted to skip the 10k and train for a half marathon and asked if I would join her. That way we could hold each other accountable. How long is a half marathon? It is 13.1 miles...yes I'm crazy!! So I decided to join her in the training. Last week I did finished week five. Here is what my training looks like:
This coming week I will actually have to repeat due to running in a mud run this Saturday. My training is set up by running all my long distance runs on Saturdays (sometimes I move them to Friday if I know someone will watch the kids). This past week I finished 7 miles. I am slow! Very slow actually! However, I saw a post on Pinterest that stated "yeah I run. I might run slower than turtles running through peanut butter, but I run!" So...I need lots of inspiration to help me complete my goal by December!!
