I really did.
On Friday morning I registered for the Evansville Half Marathon.I was supposed to rum the YMCA 10k this past weekend and it didn't happen because I've been sick and didn't feel like I was prepared to run 6.2 miles. But, I was pretty mad that I wasn't doing it and planned on attempting 6.2 on my own sometime over the weekend. Well, I was mad enough that I decided to go to the half anyway.
I'm still kind of like "What did I just dooo?!" but at the same time, it's the motivation I needed to really work on building up my mileage. I've been following the Team 13 (a local YMCA running group that gets you ready for the half) training schedule on my own but now I really gotta do it.
And guess what? I went from never running more than four miles to running 6.13 yesterday. Am I sore today? You bet! It was all I could do to climb the stairs at work today because my thighs hurt so bad. But I'm so proud of myself for doing it, even if Alan did call me a stinky wet dog when I got back :-)
I really want to order a special shirt to wear during the half (hint hint Alan) and have started pinning a few on Pinterest.
Which one do you think I should get?
