First "Long" Run

Day Zero - Back on the Road

Day ZERO

Back on the Road! My training doesn’t officially start til Tuesday, but I wanted to get on the road and running again beforehand.

New Goal - Disney Wine and Dine Half

I sat down this weekend and crafted a 16 week plan to complete a half marathon in November. I signed up for the Disney Wine and Dine Half over Chris’ dive championship weekend. 13.1 miles - WOW. Who would have thought that I would even consider such a thing last year when I first started running. Now, I actually think I can do it.

Anyway, the plan is to take a few weeks rebuilding my base, then slowly build to longer and longer runs until I can do 10 to 12. Then I should be ready. Training starts for real on Tuesday. This week I should get about 11 miles total in - certainly doable - have done it before.

I want to keep this journal as a record of the training and this accomplishment. Also, perhaps some training pointers also. Lets get it started.
