Started my training for the half marathon

Wednesday, May 21, 2014

My first day of scheduled training was yesterday. It was a easy pace 3 mile. In the description it said no pace is too slow for your easy runs. I think I took it a little too seriously. I ran my 3 miles in 37 minutes when just this weekend I did 3 miles in 31. But race pace is different than training pace, so I'm trying no to beat myself up. I don't run again until tomorrow. Another slow, easy 3. Think I might take the poochers for a walk tonight. My hips are a little tight from last nights run. Miss Sally is getting so big and she is hungry ALL. THE. TIME! But she's only 7 months old, she's growing girl.

    You're definitely thinking properly by differentiating training pace from race pace. You need to run slower to allow your body to condition properly and not risk getting injured. So keep going a comfortable speed and you'll find that when the time comes to race, you'll blow that 31 minute mark out of the water! :D Trust me, I've been where you are. Good luck!!!

    she is a pretty dog, and yes how big will she be? If I could do 3 miles in 37 minutes, I would think I was a marathon winner, but alas, I cn't even run, I walk at a good pace though Good Luck
