I've been running for two weeks now and this makes my 6th run. Until today, I had only run 1.5 miles w/out stopping to walk. (The full runs, including walks, were between 3-4 miles.) I'd been getting farther before my walk portion, each run. The distance of the walk was also getting shorter. I had been walking a whole street last week and this week I had only walked appx 50 ft.
Today I didn't walk at all!!!!!!
This morning I ran at a 10 min/mile pace for 2.6 miles and I didn't even take ANY walk breaks. I know that's not very far for a lot of people, but that's far for me!
My runs are getting better. YAY!
Oh, did I mention that the race I wanted to do in July is full? Bummer.
It was only the second year of the race and they didn't expect it to fill up so quickly.
I signed up on the waiting list, in case there are enough cancellations. Fingers crossed.
I'm trying to find another half in my area around the same time. I found one for 3 weeks later, so I'm planning on that one, but still training for July. A few extra weeks will be great for me though, since I only started running a few weeks ago. I'm following a plan where I was supposed to be able to run for 30min, prior to starting it, and that was not possible.
