1/2 marathon - YIKES

Thursday, June 21, 2012

This morning I wogged 5 miles in under an hour again! (well ok, 59:15 but that's still under an hour!) To me that is SUCCESS! I'm planning on doing a half marathon on July 8. My original goal was to do it in under 3 hours. But I was getting ambitious and said ok, 2:45 or 2:30. I know I can't keep that pace up for 13 miles, so I am back to my original goal of under 3 hours.
I hope it's not a hot day! (or raining, or snowing -- I am a fair weather wogger)

    You can do it friend!!! If it's your first 1/2 marathon, finishing it would be a good goal, and if you succeed in making it under your goal as well, that's even more awesome! But a finish is success! I hope you have a great time, and keep us posted!!! We expect pix! :-)

    Awesome, I'll be hoping for cool, non-raining, non-windy air for your 1/2. I hope you have lots of pics and details for us when you do it.

    Doing great Debby. As you get closer to the day you will know what you can do. For me, finishing would be a great achievement.

    If this is your first half marathon make sure your goal is to finish with a smile on your face and in an upright position. You have many HM's in your future so just run this one at a comfortable pace and above all...HAVE FUN!!!

    Please listen to your body and be careful! If this is your first ( I couldn't find a Half record on your SparkPage) then you know the goal is to finish and get a learning experience from it.
    I don't want to have to come all the way up to Montana (You don't need a passport, right?) and watch over you as I give you a time out!
    3 hours is a good goal and I know you will do it. You'll judge as you get deeper into the half. I'm staying true to Jeff Galloway on my next HM.

    Good luck!!! Have you been following a training plan, or are you winging it?

    Is this going to be your first half marathon? July 8th is my birthday! I will be thinking about you. I'll be at a gathering of English Shepherd dogs and their owners whom I've become close to because of my rescue work and ultimate adoption of Piper into our lives.

    I'm so excited for you! And yes, today was SUCCESS. In under an hour could be 59:59 and you beat even that.

    Keep it up my friend. You are rockin! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Could it possibly be snowing on July 8th? Just wondering.

    Good time this morning so give it your best. I think you are going to be surprised!
