How The Half is Gonna Go DownPosted: February 1, 2011
I have a plan. Yep, if you smelled smoke, now you know why 😉
By the end of 2011, I will run a half marathon.
Here’s my logic.
Last night, the very last night of January, I ran 4 consecutive miles. While it’s not my distance PR, it’s what I logged. Every month, I’m going to increase my mileage by one mile. If I hit my increased distance before the end of the month, I’ll switch it up with speedwork while maintaining the distance.
Theoretically, then, that’ll put me at half marathon mileage by the end of October, which gives me yet another month to bump up my speed (if Im sticking with the idea of the Space Coast Half, that is).
Lofty goals for a gal who has yet to even run a 5k? Maybe so. I just know that I operate best in a “Go Big or Go Home” situation.
Sound big enough?
Time to buckle down and do tha damn thang.
Bring it on!
