Half Marathon Training Recap 12/12/13

I just realized that today is 15 months since surgery! Holy crap! Where does the time go?! What a wild and crazy ride! And the best decision EVER...hands down!

Recap:


Picture from someEcards.

I was scheduled to do 3 miles and 3.2 miles is what I did. It took me 45:46 minutes.

That shit was cold! I don't know how people up North do it. I barely survived with it being "only" 38 degrees...that's in Fahrenheit.

After what seemed like HOURS, I was finally ready to hit the pavement. Two jackets, two shirts, one vest, pants, two sets of socks and my fabulous shoes later. I put my heart rate monitor and filled up my camelbak...now I was FINALLY ready to go! I stepped outside and instantly thought "WHAT THE TOM FULLERY IS THIS MADNESS!!??"

I'm not a cold runner! I rather have heat and I can't believe I'm saying that.

I'm fine with my time. I'm not terribly focused on that right now. I'm just more focused on my distance and not injuring myself. I know the speed with come in time. Overall I'm pleased with this run. I did have to walk about half a mile after I got this sharp pain in my side. I just walked it out and took deep breaths. Trying to breathe with that damn cold madness is horrible. Probably why I got that pain in my side...I wasn't breathing enough. But once the pain subsided, I was back to running and finished strong.

So that's today's recap! On tomorrow's agenda is a 30 minute walk and a gym class. I'm thinking either Zumba or BodyCombat. I'll probably do Zumba...I feel like shaking my money maker!

Xoxo
