Setting my sights on the goal

Friday, April 19, 2013

I have started increasing my mileage on my weekly long run to prepare myself for a marathon in June. This has been one of those life-long goals that i have wanted to achieve, now it looks like i will have that opportunity in about six weeks.

This morning's run was about a mile longer than last week's long run and forced me to deal with some unseasonably cool temps and a 20 mph head wind for about half the run. Oh well, as a friend says, "it builds character".

Hope your Friday is going better than expected.

    YEP! character building! Do you have enough character yet?LOL.
Good for you! You are going to be ready for that marathon by June!
I was supposed to do a 5K this morning - I was there, other runners were there - but noone showed to either start the race or tell us it was cancelled. Lame.
Had a nice walk in the park anyway with my mom.
Have a great day!

    Way to persevere! I have a half[my first] on June 15th. Training got derailed a bit while job hunting last week, but I did what I could. I tell myself walking is legal! You will be awesome!

    WOW, well it certainly helped build your endurance and stamina, in ways physical, mental, emotion, and spiritual! It is a testimony to your conviction that you stuck with your training and didn't quit because conditions weren't favorable!
