My first half marathon of 2012 is on Saturday!!! I'm excited and nervous. When I ran my first half I was confident in my training even though it was my first half. This time around I'm not as confident in my training. My longest run was 10 miles last Sunday and 95% of my training has been on the treadmill.... With no incline.
But I'm going to make the best of it and not stress over it. It's not like I don't have at least eleven other half's this year!
One of the trainers at my gym is having a 12 week fitness and weight loss challenge. It's free to participate so you know I jumped all over that. Our initial meeting was last Thursday and she got all my measurements, my weight, and body fat percentage (YIKES!) for the weight loss portion and then I did wall sits, push ups, plank and a half mile run for the fitness portion.
I meet with her weekly to get measurements and we assess fitness every 4 weeks. I'm really excited about the challenge and the accountability and motivation that it provides! I weighed in today and lost 3 pounds!!!
