Ready to get back on track....

Added you as a friend as well. Good luck with the training. Just remember to add the miles gradually so you do not get injuries. Also make sure you do cross training. One of the best pieces of advice I received from a physical therapist was the importance of strong legs and a strong core. She said pretty much anyone can run for 3 miles. But if you want to run longer distances you need strong legs or else you are going to be a hot mess at the end. So make sure you do your squats, lunges, etc. Build up those legs if you are not already doing it.

Thanks for stopping by my page. Good for you for signing up for a half marathon for next Fall. I just did mine in November. I encourage you to make sure to follow a training plan and also train outside if you can. I actually trained with a group from my local running store and we had a great training plan to follow - it was a 16 week plan and I'm happy to share. We did all of our long runs together on Saturday mornings. Good luck to you!
