Half Marathon season is almost here!

Monday, September 03, 2012

Well, after an unplanned five week hiatus, I have finally started running again...just in time to prepare for the three half-marathons that I am planning on doing this fall. I think that I was using the gym being so far from my new job and the wicked humidity as an excuse, and frankly, I was scared for some reason. I was mostly scared because I thought that I was going to have to start from the beginning again and that I wouldn't be able to run even half what I worked up to (I was up to 8 miles five weeks ago!). It's funny though because over the last couple of weeks I have been antsy and anxious because I NEEDED to run. It's like a drug, I swear. And it's funny because I didn't think that I even liked to run...so maybe it has become a habit which is awesome. So, with me preparing to run the big 13.1 runs this fall, I will be stepping up my running and trying to run at least 5 days a week. Thankfully I proved that I could run 4 miles without a problem so I should be back to 8 in a couple of weeks at the least, and I really only need to train to 10 to feel comfortable with running a half-marathon. This looks like it's really going to happen this year. I can't wait to complete this goal!
