Day one of my 8 week half marathon training schedule is done!!! It was supposed to be an easy 2 miler run at an average 12:17 minute mile, but I averaged a 10:30 minute mile on the gym treadmill, and ran 3 miles... I wanted so bad to go faster but I held back -- I didn't want to risk reinjuring my ankle/foot. I had my trusty Ipod with me. I warmed up to "Battle Without Honor Or Humanity," got into my "zone" with "Hot For Teacher," and brought it home with "Enter Sandman." (Of course there were other song in between...) I finished up with some yoga stretches and 100 floor crunches. I feel GREAT! I know a lot of people really don't like running, but for me, it gets me going and rejuvinated. I really missed it!
