So - at Christmas, my brother officially gave me the gift of entry to the half marathon at the Flying Pig this May. Yay! Incentive to get off my ever expanding hind end and get moving for real again. Woo hoo!
I've enlisted the help of my Nike + Run Club app to handle my training plan for me. I haven't been doing MUCH lately, so I needed something that would be slow and steady to get me ready, especially coming off the flu and the holidays. Today was day 1. Actually, yesterday was, but due to circumstances beyond my control it got pushed to today... And I'm glad to report that things went very well! Sure, it was only a half mile to break some rust off, but hey - it was something...and I felt GREAT...it felt nearly effortless, which helps the confidence. Tomorrow is a threshold run, so we'll see what happens with that. Could be fun! I'll keep you posted.
