|What month are we in?|
|My HUGE Garmin|
I was about 2/3 of the way done, when I realized my house key was no longer in my running skirt pocket! I had to back track through my route until I found it. I'm just glad I'd stuck to sidewalks, because for awhile, I was thinking about running on the grass. Needless to say, I won't do that again. I had put my key my running skirt pocket that has a velcro closure but only on little part - I figured it was a deep pocket so it would be safe! Normally, I carry a water bottle-which I should have brought! (Can you tell I'm out of practice?) or I have my key in a zipped pocket or I tie it to my shoe. I'll blame it on my excitement of running in 60 degrees again! I ended up doing 5 miles in 43mins. Not bad actually. I'll take it. Although, I'm feeling the impact of running since it's been awhile. My legs are sore, a good sore, but sore none the less.
Now for my big news...
for me anyways. I went ahead and registered for the Flying Pig Half Marathon in Cincinnati on May 6th. I'm so happy my running partner said she'd do it! We're going to have so much fun!

I was on the fence about it but I looked into some training plans. I originally decided to use Hal Higdon's Novice B plan since the mileage was low...then I started looking at the Intermediate plan- it has 2 more days of running but I'm thinking I might try to do a mix of plans, since I want to keep my spinning as part of my training. And, I like track workouts- yes, I'm weird. The Novice plan just has you running 3 to 5 miles 3x a week. I'd like a bit more of a challenge. Yet I know I can't do too much too soon or I'll be out again.
Have you tried mixing up training plans to have something work for you? Have you done any of the Hal Higdon marathon training plans?
