Not too shabby!

So, yesterday was my day 2 of week 1 for my half marathon training and I had to run 3 miles. It was all I had to do so I decided I would run it the best and hardest I could...besides, I was interested to see where my "starting point" was anyway.

QUITE SURPRISED! I ran 3 miles in 27:10!!!! Honestly, when I ran X-C (that's cross country if you weren't sure!) in high school...I usually ran in the 26-ish or 27-ish time frame for 3.2 miles...and that was WITH running practice EVERYDAY after school....so I'm happy with a 27:10 starting point! I am just excited to get better and better and faster and faster!


I don't know if you do this...but I do...I constantly look at the treadmill next to me to see how fast the next person is going and I play these stupid mind games with myself...thinking..."Oh no, that girl is NOT going to run faster than ME!"

I'm so weird.

More updates to come!



So, yesterday was day 1 of my first 12 week training for the half marathon...Day 1 = Strength and Stretching. Man...I was so mentally ready to just RUN...

But, I did what I was told...and did the following:

Push ups (10-1)
Unassisted Dip (10-1)
Full Sit Up (10-1)
Reverse Crunch (10-1)

Set 1 = 10 push ups, 10 unassisted dips, 10 full sit ups, and 10 reverse crunches
Set 2 = 9 push ups, 9 unassisted dips, 9 full sit ups, and 9 reverse crunches

I think you see the pattern...it ends up being 55 of everything: 55 push ups, 55 dips, 55 sit ups, and 55 reverse crunch.

My chest is so sore and so are the front part of my shoulders...I would bet from the unassisted dip...I kinda felt it, even during the workout...gotta get back into the swing of things!

Today is just 3 miles...simple...I'll report back with my time. Probably nothing too fast right now...

Until next time...
