Today marks two weeks of training for the Whidbey Half Marathon. Last week I had a really great start thanks to a good friend. It’s always very encouraging to run with someone else. I met up with a friend and we hit up some trails at Fort Ebey State Park. Best part of that run was heading back to the cars. Needless to say all we had, was a small flashlight. Maybe it’s time for me to invest in a headlamp. Rest of the weeks runs went by pretty quick. I had a couple 4 milers and a few 3 milers. I did notice a little break through last week. I noticed my pace jump up some. I’ve notice I can keep about a 9:30 pace pretty comfortable. Maybe my thoughts of running the half in 2hrs is obtainable? One needs to have goals right?
Todays run was a 5 miler. It was hard to get up this morning and go. I’m kind of thinking it was because of all the food I ate at the Superbowl party. But as always, I so very glad I did. Temp was about 32 degrees. I don’t even want to think of what it was in the shade. So glad the sun was shinning nice and bright today. If you want to see my route and stats of today’s run click HERE.
