Well, I had a "big run" yesterday, and ran about 3.7 miles, so I'm starting to get some mileage under my belt.
How far do I have to be running until I can take the quotes off of my "big run" updates? 5 miles? More? Less? I don't know.
I did a fair amount of walking in the last half, because I'm just not motivated. After running that 5k I realize I do much better under competition. I'm a capitalist through and through apparently!
I hadn't run much through the week and was sick the previous week and didn't run so I think I did alright. However, fun time is over! Today I start my training program-I was on a pre-conditioning schedule before.
I think it really did work, because I surely could not have run for almost an hour a couple of months ago, so I'm going to stick with this program. Now I have to start hard core so I don't make a fool of myself come race day. Which is really my biggest fear at this point, well that and how I'll keep running when it's dark when I go to work and dark when I come home and cold, Cold, COLD.
