Today I looked up and got the date for my half marathon. Its September 24th. So I have 10 weeks to prep and get in shape enough to run it.
Thats a little bit daunting actually...but I know that I can do it.
Tonight I got out and just ran to see what I could do. I finished two miles feeling actually pretty darn good, but I didn't want to push to hard on my first day, so I walked/jogged another mile and a half, and called it a day. Tomorrow is gonna be a light mile long jog, and strength training day to get a little rest, and then I will actually start the official training program I decided on.
I am feeling pretty pumped about it. Its a goal thats within my reach, but is challenging enough to really push me out of my comfort zone and kick my butt into shape. I am excited to see how far I can go at the end of these 10 weeks. Hopefully its the full 13.1 miles, but even if I have to walk some of it, its a testament to how far I can really push myself if I try.
Other than that, today was pretty chill. Not a whole lot to elaborate on.
So, Question for the day today. Would you ever compete in a timed race of considerable distance such as a 10k, half-marathon, marathon, etc?
