We Have Some Catching Up To Do

Hi!

So, we have some catching up to do!

Since my first half marathon, my workout regimen has been none existent. I had surgery in August and have been on the mend for a long time. It’s also pretty cold in Vermont and school has been time consuming. [Insert more excuses here].

Any who… I’ve slowly started going to the gym and participated in my first Turkey Trot! It was really cold, but so much fun! Now I have my eyes set on another half marathon April 13th (93 days!). The winter storm is kind of messing me up, but I think I’m still on track with the running schedule I created.  Idealistically I’d like to set a new half marathon personal record, but realistically I’d like to run the entire thing without developing 12 blisters by mile 9 (I wish I was exaggerating).

Here is the schedule!

I’m also looking to revamp my workout playlist “Run For Your Life”. I like good pace setting beats- any suggestions?
