Half Marathon Training: 2 Weeks To Go!

This quote completely represents my long from this weekend.  I just could not hit 10 mi but even though I had to walk for the last mi, I just kept telling myself that as long as I kept moving, I would finish.  I think that’s gonna be my motto for the half.  I may not be the fastest but I will finish.  I also tried out my peanut butter gel during the long run and it tasted pretty good but did nothing for energy so I might have to take it a bit earlier on race day.  I cannot believe that the half is only 2 weeks away.  Time just flew by.  Here was my training schedule for this past week:  Continue reading

OOTD + I ran 5 mi!! + Half Marathon?

Loved my outfit for today!  I was a skater girl.  I wore a navy blue hollister sweatshirt, a gray cami, a purple/blue/pink shirt, blue jeans and my new DCs(got them in November but first time wearing them).   I love how simple and comfortable this outfit is but still remains cute.

On another note, this past weekend I ran 5 miles straight!!  Such a huge accomplishment for someone who could barely run 1 mile.  I’m also planning on running a 5k on February 9 to kinda of do a time check and see where I’m at pace wise outdoors.  This will also help determine a goal time for a half marathon I’m thinking about doing.  I found one mid-May that I think I want to train for.  I’d have to start training the last week of February and am thinking about chronicling it on this blog.  What do you guys think?

Have any of you guys ran a half marathon before?  Do any of you plan on it?  What was your experience like?
