Jun 05, 2010Today was the last milage day before the half marathon. We scaled back this week. Last week we did 12 miles. It was a long hot process but I got it done!! Today we did 6 miles and my pace was a 17.1 minute mile. That is much better than what I started at back in Jan/Feb. The time limit for the Half Marathon is 4 hours. If I am able to maintain the pace I kept today I will be able to finish in just a bit under the 4 hour mark. I can't believe that I am really going to complete a Half Marathon next weekend.
Wait, yes I can believe it.......because I am really beginning to believe I truly can do ANYTHING I set my mind to doing.
Update on weight loss....I have now lost 36lbs since surgery. The process has been a bit slower than what I thought it might be but I am in such better shape and feel a million times better. I know the pounds will continue to slip away and the sizes on the labels of my clothes will continue to decrease if I just keep doing what I am doing. I don't think I will have any problem with that................................
because I am LOVING IT!!
