18 weeks away!

Posted on: June 3, 2012

So, Friday I got an information pamphlet in the mail about the Crawlin’ Crab Half Marathon in October.  It just makes me more more excited and more motivated!

It’s 18 weeks from today and I can’t wait.  Of course, I’m nervous.  It’s 13.1 miles!  But I’m excited for the challenge.  I only hope when it’s time, I’m more than ready, physically.

Time wise, I’m not too worried about.  It’s distance.  I’ve never walked that far before, much less jogged or ran.  I’ve been trying to work on getting miles in, and last week I managed to do a total of 37.7 miles.  My goal was 30, so that’s pretty good.

But I need to work up to doing 13.1 miles at one time.  The farthest I’ve done lately at one time is 7.05 miles.  That’s a little over half of a half marathon.

I haven’t been working very much on time lately.  I timed myself on a mile on Friday, and I managed to do a 16:04 mile.  While I could finish the race with time to spare, that’s not the time I want to have come October.  And I have a 5k in September I’d like to improve my time for.  So, I really do need to step it up.

I’ve been working on my core lately, which I know helps.  I’m not sure if I’ve lost any weight and won’t know until next week (this week is shark week).  But I have been working out every single day and plan to again this week, so hopefully I’ll see some pounds come off.

Lots of work to be done!
