    As of January 11th, I’m at 35.5 miles toward my 100 mile goal.

    jan 9 = 7.5
    jan 10 = 10
    jan 11 = 17
    117/1200
    ahead of schedule thanks to the miles racking up on my bike. New bike arrives tomorrow, Schwinn 270 Recumbent Bike, hoping it lives up to my expectations. I do hate purchasing new things that can fall short or fall apart ha. It has bluetooth and works with the RideSocial app so I am looking forward to adding that new experience to my list of things that motivate me to move more.

    Sunday -- Today I ran my very first Half Marathon!!! 21.2 km.

    Stats according to Strava
    Distance: 21.30km
    Elevation: 177m
    Moving Time: 2:51:15
    Elapsed Time: 2:53:17
    Pace: 8:02/km
    Calories:1,694

    I had done four 10Ks in the past year, and so I figured I was ready. I signed up for the Cadbury Marathon and selected half marathon. Then I started training in earnest ... for about a week or so. December was an incredibly busy month and I wasn't able to get in as much training as I wanted, but I still tried to walk lots, run when I could, cycle when I could and climb stairs.

    Fortunately I had 16 days off over the Christmas break and I was able to be active every day.

    I ran a 12 km two weeks ago, and a 14.4 km last weekend. The 12 km went all right ... the 14.4 went all right while I was running, but I felt awful after. I'm actually glad that happened because it altered my strategy for the better.

    This past week, I just walked in order to give myself rest.

    Today, I was up at an absolutely unearthly hour of the morning (4 am), on the road by 5 am, and at the event by 5:45 am.

    The marathon runners were set off at 6 am, and my event went at 6:30 am. My husband's event (5K) went at 8:45 am.

    It was a perfect day ... blue sky and hardly any wind. The starting temp was 10C and it gradually increased to 18C by the end.

    I followed my revised strategy which appeared to give me the energy to the end. Rather than running on an empty stomach the whole way, I was doing gatorade and water at the drink stations, and Gu Energy Chews along the way. I also ate about half an hour before the run. Fuel is good!

    And then I settled into my pace and jogged.

    My legs were cooperative until about 18 km when they decided they'd had enough of this nonsense, and that's when I started walking & jogging.

    I finished in 02:51:11 which was faster than my estimate. I had guessed I'd be somewhere between 3 and 3.5 hours.
    AVERAGE PACE: 08:06
    OVERALL: 653 OF 694
    FEMALE: 342 OF 377
    F (50-54): 36 OF 39

    A nice solid back-of-the-pack finish for my first half marathon!! :grin:


    And my husband? He did his 5K in 46 minutes ... mostly jogging with a little walking. I was so proud of him. :)


    We got our bags of chocolate and stuff from Cadbury, and great medals! We shared hot chips while watching the presentations for the top 3 of each event. Then we came home and slept for about 3 hours.

    I'm quite stiff and sore, and I think my husband is too a bit. We'll see how I go walking briskly to the bus tomorrow!

    But nevertheless, I'm thrilled to have done a half marathon!!


    (I'll have to catch up with my totals shortly).

    I am coming in a bit late but I walk and other days I jog so counting steps will be my challenge. Hopefully over 12000 a day. I jogged yesterday so that was over 13000.
    Good luck to you all

    Week 2: 25.5 / 25
