I had every intention of running this morning. But when my alarm went off I just wanted more sleep. Please. More. Sleep.
So I slept. Sure, forty-five minutes doesn't seem like a lot, but it felt great and I feel good. And I am going to walk and work on my steps and maybe go for a run after the Guys go to bed. And if I don't, I am definitely going for a run tomorrow morning. I will run!
Training for my half marathon starts on Sunday. Woo hoo! Being the nerd that I am I just entered my training plan into my Google calendar so I can access it without having to look it up on the internet every time. This is the first time I am training for time instead of just training to finish. This means some speed work which should be interesting.
I will be cutting back on my walking as I increase my mileage. One of the things my plan stresses is to go easy on your legs on the off days. Which means no super long walks. I will probably stop aiming for 12K steps at the end of this month. It has been fun, don't get me wrong, but I think 10K is just fine. And the 12K steps means I am usually doing extra walking that I won't need to be doing on rest days. Know what I mean?
Anyone else have plans for a spring half marathon or big spring race?
My half marathon is the Martian Half Marathon on April 18, 2015. Look out, half, here I come!
