Journey to a Half Marathon - Post #6

So it's 136 days to my first half marathon! Things have gone ok this week. I started out Sunday with an 8.63 mile walk with my daughter. She is doing her first half in October in Myrtle Beach. We did this walking in 2 hours 34 minutes - a 17'54"/mi pace. I was quite impressed since neither one of us had gone past 6 miles before. What a way to spend Mother's Day! 

On Monday night I did 2 miles with my other daughter at a slower walking pace. It was awesome to see her finally get moving. I secretly think she enjoyed it! 

On Tuesday night we had our group run and I got another 5 miles under my belt. By Wednesday I was exhausted and still having some right foot pain/swelling. Since we had stormy weather all day, I decided to spend Wed night doing some circuit weight training in my garage. Haven't done that in a while and it felt great!

So all-in-all, things are progressing nicely. I am doing a fun run Saturday with the running group, the Foam Run. This is a wet, messy obstacle course. We'll see how that turns out!!!

Goodnight for now, and thanks for taking this journey with me!
