NSV! Distance PR!

quiksylver296quiksylver296 Posts: 24,293Member Member Posts: 24,293Member Member
NSV!! Distance PR! I jogged EIGHT miles without walking!!! 85 minutes. The most I've ever done prior to this was a 10K race three years ago. For those working on c25K, I started there, too. If I can do this, anyone can! Believe in yourself!

I am super impressed with myself right now. When I was nearing the end of my jog, I started thinking "I could do a half-marathon." I think I can! That may be my new goal. :happy:

    I'm training for a half marathon right now, and it's an awesome feeling setting a new pr every week in regards to distance! If you feel the need for a challenge, I say sign up for a half marathon! It's something on my bucket list and on the way to the big running bucket list item of a marathon.

    It's a little scary to commit, but I think I'm gonna have to do it. :ohwell:

    I've just been idly looking at training for half marathons (I'm no where near that yet. But some day...) Apparently, if you can comfortably run 8 miles, you'll be fine for a half. So yeah - go get it!

    Congrats!

    What??? That's amazing. Especially with how hard you train your legs.

    Edit - I just saw your post was from 2013. :p

    Hahaha, I didn’t look at the date and nearly fainted.

    I’d just read on another thread you were dropping a few lbs for your next meet, then all of a sudden half marathons were rearing their head.
    Dazed and confused, scrape me off the floor, to say the least.

    So the question is- did you ever do a half?

    Cheers, h.

    ETA: I was expecting the ‘hit 400’ post.

    C'mon. I'll pay and we can run one together. I'm sure I can get others on the bandwagon as well!

    Yeah, I did one (and only one). :D

    That darn 400 is being elusive!
