Good news: One of the guys who is planning on running this with me found a training program for Half Marathons.
Bad news: It’s a 12 week program which means technically I don’t have to start training until December 27th.
Chalk one up for procrastination!
I am still going to run as often as I can since I do really need to be in shape. I mean, the program is for beginners, but I still need to add a mile to my run at the end of each week for 12 weeks. If I can get a jump start I think I would be better off.
This morning started off different. I had decided that I was going to run outside again, but that I was going to go to Van Cortlandt Park and use the track. Little did I know that there are zero lights at the park, so running at 5:30 was not an option… unless I wanted to get mugged. So, back to the gym and on the treadmill.
Changed things up a little this morning. I ran for 30 minutes and I will see if I can improve my distance within the 30 minute time frame. I figured this was a little better than running miles and trying to add distance that way. The new way I run for the whole 30 minutes whereas before I was stopping at 23ish. I almost broke the 11 minute mile so that made me happy.
Woke up at 5:00am
Gym at 5:50am
Ran 2.72 miles in 30.00 min for a average mile of 11.01.
Time to go: 794 days, 23 hours, 26 minutes ago
