Half-Marathon Training Day 7
Last Updated on
I think it's Day 7 but to be honest I'm not so sure. It may be day 5? I just picked a number. I'm sick, and tired, so today's training was not a joy-ride at all. I've never walked any farther than 3 miles. Well, I take that back, I did 4 miles the other day while training. Today I did 6 miles. The last mile was my fastest, because I just wanted to get it the hell over with.
Some random strangers kept stopping and saying hi to us on our walk so that did slow us down.
Miles 1-3 were hard. I was tired and didn't even want to be outside walking. Miles 4-6 were easier because we were on our way back, and had an end in sight.
My goal is to do 15 minute miles (or less) at the half-marathon. The last mile of today's training was 14:53. I jogged a little and didn't get distracted as often, so that was a plus.
It's all coming together and as long as my body will hold out and my knees will hold me up, I know I can do this. My confidence is growing with each passing day. If you've never trained for something before, I definitely recommend it. It's uplifting, challenging, and crazy awesome all at once.
