And so it begins...

Today marks my "official" start of training for the half, though I've been working out off and on and heading out on the pavement when I can, from here on out the schedule starts. This morning was pretty easy, it was a nice strength and stretch day, so it honestly felt a little like I was cheating...ah well. I'm sure as the weeks go on, I'll LOVE Mondays and the bit of a "break" the give me.

If anyone is wondering what training plan I'm following, I'm actually doing a mixture of a couple I found. I was going to follow Hal Higdon's plan to the tee, but I really wanted to do a long run of at least 12 miles, so I've played around with the Sunday mileages and think I'm happy with it. The most miles I have myself adding a week are 2, and most weeks it's only a mile. I dropped the 5K and 10K race, if I can find one that fits in with my training schedule, I'll go for it, but if not, no biggie. :)

If any readers have advice for me, I'd love to hear it. I'm fairly new to this whole thing and one can never have enough knowledge.
