Ran 8 miles yesterday!

Saturday, February 27, 2010

In my training for my half-marathon, I just ran 8 miles for the first time yesterday! I ran at an average of 11:51 minute/mile, which is great for me! Today I feel pretty good, just a bit sore and I felt pretty good during the entire run also!

The next 7 weeks are going to be pretty intense building up! My half-marathon is only 9 weeks away! I am also going to be running my first 10K on March 20th. I have to keep focused, take care of myself, and stay on my training schedule. No more overuse injuries... I am definitely starting to feel the pressure a bit, but I know I will do great!

    That is impressive. I wish I could do something like that, but right now I'm happy to be walking 3-4 miles a day. I'm trying to get up to speed to walk the Butte to Butte.

    Wow great training run! I ran halfway up Mount Pisgah today too. I am training for the women's half marathon in September in Eugene. I am only up to about 6 miles so far, and about your speed. At least I will have the spring and summer to train and condition. Good luck with your training and your half marathon. emoticon
