Half training officially begins! But what have I been up to in the mean time? Here’s a quick 1 minute video:
After reviewing various programs, I’ve decided to go with the Nike Plus Coach program! Tres excited!
I chose this one because I like the app itself (moving from the Garmin 305) and the challenges I’ve already done with Nike + friends.
I missed the boat for the 12 week program start, but since I’ve been running consistently I’m going to suck it up and jump in with 8 weeks to go. Challenge accepted!
Ottawa Half-Marathon race day (May 25, 2014) goals:
- finish strong & smiling
- preventing lows to the best of my ability
- significantly drop my time
- have fun!
For my first half-marathon, Scotiabank Waterfront Toronto Marathon, the goal was to finish.
I ran it with my dad and we came in at 2:39:10. It was his first and last half-marathon, so I was glad we could accomplish that together.
This race I will be going at my pace and running solo.
I’m not sure what’s going on with my other health stuff plus my wonky honeymooning but I’m pushing through.
I’m running this half in support of Connected in Motion. If you’d like to donate and read more about why I’m supporting CIM, please click here.
Thank you to those who have already reached into their pockets. This one means a lot.
