I’ve been reading all over blogland about my blogger friends running half marathons.
And it itches, I’ve been thinking a lot about running a half the past few days and I think I want to do a half marathon but …. not this year.
It has been September since I last ran a 10K and I’m still not that fast a runner and I don’t want to run it in 3 hours or more.
So I’ve decided to focus this year on reaching my goal weight, running faster and work on my strength. This year I’m going to run 5K and 10K races and try to improve my time so by the end of this year I’m running a 10K in 1.05/1.10 or so. And keep dreaming of running a half marathon one day, hopefully next year.
Today I went to the gym to do an interval training on the treadmill. I’m still a bit tired so it wasn’t the best workout ever but I did what I could.
Distance: 3K / 1.8 miles
Average speed: 6:54 /km
Running should be a lifelong activity. Approach it patiently and intelligently, and it will reward you for a long, long time.
