Final Training Update

Well, I've had my last big run before the half now. It's hard to believe it's almost here already. (See my sidebar for the exact countdown)

I completed 12.1 miles on Saturday in about two hours and 45 minutes. It's a little less than a 14 minute mile pace. Not going to break any records or anything, but I'll finish! And while I would have rather trained to be comfortable with the actual half marathon mileage, I'll do fine with just adding one more mile next week. I've been adding a mile a week to my big runs for a few weeks now and I should be fine with it. I felt like I could have gone another mile this weekend. It shouldn't be 26 degrees to run at Disney World either and I think that will help too. But I'll probably be uncomfortably hot, but I'll take it!

Plus I'm super excited to be going away for the weekend with Tim. It'll be a short trip, but I still have a nursling so I can't be gone that long! Maybe next time. I also want to thank everyone who is helping with the boys for the weekend, we really appreciate it. Tim's really excited too.

Look forward to pictures and a recount sometime next week.
