It’s been decided. I’m now registered for the January 23, 2011 Vancouver Lake half marathon.
I was worried about committing to it knowing that I’d be running it alone this year, but I won’t be alone. Thanks to those that said they’d be cheering me along during my training.
I’ve very excited actually. Training starts today and I’ll be going for a short run during my lunch break.
I came up with a basic training plan, but will be getting something much better. In my Fitness Testing class one of my fellow classmates offered to build me a training plan. He’s a biking and running coach, so I’m stoked to have a specialized plan to work with.
My main 2 goals for this half marathons are to:
1. Not get injured – I’ve got to keep my Achilles issues under control this time.
2. Improve my time. My best half marathon time is 2 hours 3 minutes and some change. I want to be under 2 hours this time.
With the speed training I’ll be including I hope to accomplish this. Fun training in the rain begins today!
Come back later today and become a pomegranate pro: how to easily de-seed a pomegranate.
