Training goals for Half in December

Sunday, September 29, 2013

Holiday Half will be on December 15, 2013 Need to get done in 3.5 hrs. right now my half time was at 4:04 how do you shave that you add a run to it. How do you do that when you can't even run a full 5k yet? Hmmm... Well my best friend, mentor and personal trainer says i can do it..

So i have to log 21-24 miles a week then bump it up to 30 by December of walk jogging my goal is to do be able to run 1/4 to 1/3 of mile striaght and walk 3/4 to 2/3 miles in hopes to get myself 16:15 min miles. I am hoping to do this. Today i run about to long stretches of 1/4 of mile and the other was 1/3 of mile so i'm still doing intervals and then will also add the endurance to it!! the longer runs will help!! next week six mile saturday.

I got out there in the rain today got splashed by a comcast truck. I commited last week in logged 24 hrs total (includes the half i completed last sunday) but stuck to my guns got up at 4am and walked/run (woggled) yesterday was a rest day - treated myself to a massage!!! I am committed to this and I really want to get it done!!

Don't stop believing in yourself -- you never know what you are capable of doing until you try and do it -- you will amaze yourself i know i have!

    Emm - I have absolute and total faith that you CAN do this. You shaved a boat-load of time off your last run so I KNOW this is doable! I love that you have such a concrete goal. You GO girl! emoticon
