It's almost here!!!!

HOLY CRAP!!! 3 Weeks til I run in my first half marathon! I know I know I've been remiss in writing and I truly apologize! I'll try not to let it be so long next time.

On Friday I ran 7miles. 7 miles!!! This time last year I was in physical therapy (PT) trying to be able to walk for blocks at a time without shin I'm running 7miles. Let me tell you, it ain't easy.

Saturday I went for a 4-5mile hike, during the first mile I was suffering from shin splints but after that I felt really good. It actually helped my legs a lot. They were less sore from Fridays run.

On Sunday I did the longest distance ever! 8.92. I had only planned on doing 8 so I was surprised when it turne dout I did a longer distance but also made me feel better that the reason I was feeling the pain WAS because I was almost at 9miles. I didn't have a plan when I did the distance...I was just running. I've been battling with the idea of trying to run continuously or continue with my run/walk plan. I kinda get stuck on trying to push myself and run as much as I can but then I get tired and have to walk and in the end I suffer.

Good thing about all this is the miles are increasing!!
