Training week 3

so I'm in week 3 of the Hal training and so far i love it. I found that after i finished my c25K this spring and then after that i started a 10 week newbie triathlon training that i'm definately more motivated and driven to succeed with a written or online plan. So after picking a half marathon next feb. 2010 i counted the weeks to train and found a plan appropriate for it. Well this one is a 12 week plan which will allow me to get thru the holidays and any other life events. I found a friend who is at about the same level as me and we are going to do the marathon together and do our best to run our long runs together. I will not try and bore you with all of my background but i would like to tell you that i have successfully made it thru every mile suggested in the first two weeks of this program. My husband (DH i will refer to him as dear husband pictured) travels quite a bit and i'm a stay at home mom so we have an 18 yr old in high school living here it's his daughter and my 9 yr old and our 1 yr old. I have been off work since she was born. It has been an amazing experience although i new i needed more so it has been a blessing on all sides for me to have found my running spot. I hope you enjoy and share in my journey as i take you to my first half marathon and beyond 40. Yes, there i said it I will be 40 in January. :)


  1. This is a GREAT start! I can't wait to read about your adventures.

    All the best,


  2. First off - congratlations on getting started! Second - keep putting one foot in front of the other. February will be here soon.

  3. This is a crazy beautiful blog! Wow, an 18 year old and a baby in the same house, you have some adventures to share I'm sure! What a great thing to do; start moving, set some goals and move on from the stuff from the past. I'm all about that girl! Like Glenn said, keep putting one foot in front of the other, that's what it's about!

  4. Welcome to the blog world; I look forward to reading about your adventures. And what a GORGEOUS baby!

    I live in Centennial; we are neighbors :). Maybe one day we can hook up for a run. I do some running coaching on the side (RRCA) so if you ever have any questions with training or nutrition or anything at all, give me a shout.
