This is going to be quite the challenge, a half marathon, since i've never done anything of the sort. Mind you, I am only walking. They always say you should start out small and work you way up, really??? - everyone that knows me knows I start at the top, so why start with 5K, lets just go for 13.1 miles - and die at the end.
No seriously, if there was a 5K to chose from, I would have signed up gladly. Trust me, 13.1 miles is scaring the bejesus out of me and i am only walking. I have 8 months to get in shape. My plan is to walk three times a week upping the anti every 3 weeks.
I will be posting my progress here - so come back and cheer me on! I am going to need it.
Time: 19:23; Pace 16 min per mile
Time: 17:26; Pace 14 min per mile
Time 16:37; Pace 13 min per mile
This is where I want to be - 13 min miles, now to maintain it for 13.1 miles.
