It's Official!!

I've lost my mind. Apparently, for real this time.
Yes, you read that correctly. I signed up Monday. My brother & sis-in-law ran a half Sunday, my friend Wendy is running a half next month & I really, really want one of those 13.1 stickers to put on my car. Seriously. I remember a time when I had no idea what that sticker even meant. The race isn't until December. Yes I know that's a really long way away but I saved $30 by signing up now. Plus, since I've paid I'll be sure to train.

I got back on the exercise bandwagon last week. Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday I went to Yoglates. I didn't run last week because I thought it would be a good idea to not  kill myself by doing both. My first run was Saturday. I ran 1.4 miles, then walked 6/10 of a mile & then ran another mile. It was tough. It didn't help that I thought it was cooler than it was & I got hot.

This week I went to Yoglates Monday evening & Tuesday morning. 4:45 is so early. This morning I got up & ran 2 miles but this time there wasn't a walk break. That was my goal so I was very pleased.

Tomorrow is Yoglates & then Friday I'll run again unless it's raining. If it is I'll go back to Yoglates.

I also signed up for the Komen Race for the Cure that is being held at LSU March 2nd. It's just a 5K.  I should be ready for it.

I've been looking through the app store & googling trying to decide which training plan I'd like to use for the half. There are a lot & I can't decide. Any suggestions?

I'll leave you with this

  5. Yay!!! You will love it!! I used Hal Higdon's plan for beginners (it's free just google) the first race and then the last two races I've used a modified version of that. Just be sure to get in all your long runs. You have plenty of time to train and increase mileage though!
