This Week's Runs!

This week's going to be fun. I get to run my first half marathon!! Exciting!

I would have never thought a year ago that I would be running a half marathon. It's just nuts! So, I'm not really going to be "racing" this half marathon. It's more of a "run through" of how it's going to be when I run my marathon in June. I'm just planning on taking my time and running at an easy pace. I'm going to take advantage of the water stops and stuff like that. I'm guessing I'll finish around 2 hours 30 min. If I'm faster than that then AWESOME, but I'm not expecting to be under.

This week's runs are gonna be:
Monday: 5 miles
Tuesday: 3 miles
Wednesday: 8 miles
Thursday: 4 miles
Friday: 2 miles
Saturday: HALF MARATHON! + 1 mile warm up.
Sunday: OFF

It should be pretty easy. I just gotta take 1 day at a time and it'll all work out.

My goals this week are to eat right and get my runs in. I'm not going to make a ton of goals and then fail. So, eat right and get my runs in should be more than good. Well, I wouldn't mind winning a few of the giveaways out there, but I can't do much about that. Maybe I can bribe someone or something...lol

Anyway, I hope everyone out there has a good week this week.

OH! I read on someones blog somewhere about a group that you can join if you run a certain amount of half marathons in a certain time frame, but for the life of me I can't remember what its called. Anyone out there have a link or know what the heck I'm talking about? :)

it's the half fanatics club. To qualify in the lowest rank you have to do 2 halfs in 16 days or 3 halfs in 3 mos.
Something like that.

Where are your rest days, lady?! You are running a ton this week leading up to your race!

Good luck!
