You can mark off #4.
After having not trained for about 4 weeks due to illness, it was less a test of training and more a test of determination. But you can mark off a half marathon.
First 1/2 Marathon
Ave pace 12:13
Not dang bad.
Lost 2-3 minutes stretching a cramp out...but NO walking. None.
My running group/Bible study (that I inadvertantly started at church) wanted to run a half marathon to celebrate our accomplishment. We couldn't find one nearby on a date we could all make so we set up a page on Facebook and did a Make-Your-Own-Half. We went down to the local exercise path and ball-parked the map for our needs, and then just ran. It was awesome. And we ate at Cracker Barrel after, to celebrate. Yum!
I'm taking the summer quasi-off. I plan to run about 4-5 miles once a week, and then bike or do a Beachbody workout video, or skate....so I don't get burned out or lose what I've fought so hard to gain.
I've signed up for The Battlefield 1/2, too. And I really can't wait!!!!!
