Training Begins

There's no turning back now, my friends! The Hal Higdon Half Marathon training app I've had on my phone for three months begins today and I am actually pretty excited about it!!!

I am still not sure if I will get every run in that I am suppose to, but I am going to try really hard to make it happen. I've been feeling good on my runs the last two weeks and Eric and I have been doing MUCH better with eating healthy. I just signed on for a 30-day challenge and my goal is simple: continue to eat healthy and run/workout at least 4-5 days a week. 

So...now that the plan is in place, I need to make one thing happen in the next week.

I need new shoes!! 

I needed them yesterday, but I have been toying around with the idea of trying the Nike Free Runs since everyone is crazy about them, but when I look at my good old Air Pegasus'...I just don't know that I am ready to make a change!! Plus, they have some super cute colors in this model.

I figure by the time July is here, I will have been running and working out consistently AND eating healthy for 3 months so my goal is to look like this in my run shorts for the half marathon :-)

Thanks for the inspiration Lululemon :-)

So...is anyone else gearing up to start a challenge or a new training program this month?


  1. I started the Couch to 5K app a couple weeks ago, but had to start over at week 1 because I added a running buddy.

    I have to be honest, following your blog has been a huge inspiration to me to get my butt off the couch and start running! I want to run a 5K this summer, and maybe a 10K by the end of the year :)

  2. Lady, I saw you FB post early and I'm SO proud of you for signing up! I've never had the balls to commit to the half marathon (even tho I've talked about it for years! -- and now, well, just isn't the time for me lol ;)

    You can SO do this!!
