So I had the first draft of this post almost finished on my way home on Monday night. It was beautiful and perfect. All I had to do was add the calendar and it was on. But somehow between my phones wordpress app and the computer I lost it. Which was fine, although a little frustrating Monday night when I tried to re-type it (it just wouldn’t flow right). So I said I would retry on Tuesday. But I got a 24 hour flu on Tuesday and basically spent the whole day shivering in bed trying not to die. No blog post on Tuesday. But what happened on Wednesday? I had a recital to go to from a friends.
Somehow it is Thursday and I feel like the whole damn week has just flown by. With me doing very close to nothing. I did have a great night on Monday for my run though.
That says that I did a mile under 20 mins, under 19 mins, under 18 and 17 mins. I actually did 4 miles with an average of a 16 min mile! So yes I was extremely happy with myself. A ton better then what I thought I would be. I just want to get down to a 14/15 min mile for the Star Wars Rebel Challenge. Only need to shave off 2 mins. Doable!
So what exactly does my calendar look like? I warn you…its a training calendar on steroids and really should not be attempted unless under extreme measures (like a 32 day limit to get ready for a Half Marathon that you spent over $400 for).
A really big shout out to FXP Fitness Hula Hoop (My 10% off still works and you can still get you and a loved one the gift of Hula Hoop Fitness!!), BeachBody Piyo and BadFish Roller Derby for filling my days with something OTHER then running!
Obviously I am doing something that I have NEVER done in the past. I personally don’t think me doing any of those previous 5k’s actually count for trying to run a Half Marathon.
To succeed in this, I have to do something that I have never really done before. Sacrifice my free time. Which I usually hold on to very jealously. But right now…I want to run. I want to get out of my own head, and I want to succeed at this Half I can almost taste it. The days are going by so fast that I am going to lose them if I don’t use them. So I am choosing to use my days. Because if I don’t use them…they are just going to waste and to regret. And right now I have a little too much regret running in my life, I don’t want this to be added on.
Okay NeverEver’s, this is a short post. The purpose of this was to get my training plan out there. Which again should have been out on Monday, but better late then never!
