Do you remember my commitment?
Do you remember one of my fitness goals for 2013?
Consider me committed!
That’s right. I’ve officially signed up for my first 1/2 marathon – the 2013 Lincoln Presidential 1/2 Marathon in Springfield, IL April 6th – 4 days before my 26th birthday!
2013 is going to be a big year for me – I can feel it and I’m so excited for it!
But this isn’t going to come easy – it’s going to work and perseverance and learning and listening to my body. It’s going to be hard and it’s going to be a journey but it’s one I’m willing and excited to take and share with you all.
As for my training, I’ve been maintaining my mileage for the last few weeks and trying to add in an extra run or two where possible to get my body used to running more. But ultimately, next week I’ll start my official training and for that I’ll be following Hal Higdon’s Novice 1 – 1/2 Marathon Training Plan. He hasn’t let me down so far so I’m putting my trust in these programs again.
Have you ever completed a 1/2 marathon? Any tips?
What are you committed to?
