In my last post, I announced that my sister-in-law, Kenna, and I are training for a half marathon in order to get ourselves back into decent shape.
The half mary?
I’ve never done the Barry Half before, so I’m excited to run a new (to me) course!
The most I’ve done in months has been 3 miles at a time for Atlanta Running Tours.
Even then, I would only run once or twice a week…if that.
Kenna and I decided that we needed to keep each other accountable, so we’re using an awesome Google Doc to do just that.
I came up with a plan for us that doesn’t have crazy high mileage with no more than 4 days of running per week. Below the suggested mileage, there are sections where we can each input our actual mileage.
Plus, we text each other when we ran.
It’s been working great for both of us! It’s been really motivating to me knowing that Kenna’s out there working hard too. I know I can’t let her down.
Are you running any late winter/spring races this year? Do you usually train alone or with a group?
It’s been a minute since I’ve posted anything here, but it feels really good to be back. Comfortable and familiar. I’ve missed my blogging family, and after a whirlwind second half of 2012, I think I’m ready to resume KristyRuns.
Honestly, this girl wasn’t doing a whole lot of running while she was away. After logging ridiculous mileage in the first half of 2012, my mind and body desperately needed a break. I learned what it was like to sleep in on the weekends, and it was amazing.
I did keep up with Atlanta Running Tours here and there, but I really wasn’t doing anything over 3 miles. The love of the tours was the only thing keeping me running.
Now, I’m refreshed and renewed, excited to add regular running to my life. This time will be different; I’m focusing on balance. No weeks over 25 miles. Period.
My sister-in-law, Kenna, and I have decided to train for a half marathon at the end of March. I’m not going to worry about time, but just having fun and getting back into shape.
Thanks for sticking around, and I hope you continue to do so! I’ll post more updates this week about my training plan, new job, eating, and fun house stuff.
Are you training for anything right now?
Two shots of espresso, steamed soy milk, sprinkles of cinnamon, clove, and ground ginger for a homemade soy chai latte. Who needs Starbucks?
