I finished my first week of half marathon training. I did four days (3 miles, 3 miles, 4 miles and yesterday I did 5 miles). Here I am after the 5 miles - not very flattering but it is real.
It was a pretty good time for me. Thursday I did 4 miles in an hour which is a pretty good pace for me. I have been running in the 14 mm but after so many miles I slow down or walk. Saturday I did 5 miles in 1 hr and 18 min but my 4 mile cut was in 1 hour. I will keep plugging along - I am carrying alot of extra weight so I can't be too hard on myself.
I watched an Ironman video posted on bendoeslife blog and it was inspiring. Not that I could ever do that but a girl (or old woman) can dream can't she? here is a link

No update on weight - same. :(
Okay heading off to swim at the YMCA! Later.
