I am into week 8 of training for my first half marathon.
It trips me out to read that!
I’ve done 20 runs and taken 19 Dailey Method classes. I’ve done yoga, walked, and RIDDEN A BIKE!
No injury to speak of. I attribute that to Dailey Method (great stretching sequences and vigilant attention to alignment) and icing. I will NOT be sidelined by misuse. Will. Not.
I’ve lost 9lbs bringing me to 128. A weight I haven’t seen since I was 12 years old. My entire body has muscle definition that (pardon me, please) is SO ROCKING AND HOT. I loooooooooooove it.
The first week of “training” happened on a lark. I woke up wondering if I could still run. I found out that I could. I wondered if the See Jane Run 5k was soon and if I was capable of finishing it. It was that week and I found out that I was more capable than I expected. I wondered if I had the drive, enthusiasm, and physical stamina to train for a half-marathon. I won’t definitively know until October 7th but based on the last 7 weeks, I can say without hesitation that I do.
8 weeks ago, I didn’t know if I could run 3.1 miles without stopping to walk. 8 weeks from now, I will be up to 12.5 miles.
And hopefully able to get into crow pose. 😀
