It started when I was looking on line today for races to do. Then I found a half marathon on Dec 11th in North Carolina! Our anniversary is on the 14th so I thought that would be something fun we could do together. Alex has always been a big runner and done races and whatnot. I have not. I always though it was cause of my legs, or cause I got shin splints and cause my knees and hips hurt when I ran just a little bit. Turns out it was just cause I was fat and overweight haha.
I am actually pretty good at running now, I guess I just needed to get in shape.
I'm mostly just way happy that I will get to do something with Alex that he loves. It'll be fun to bond this way.
Alex custom made me Nike's a couple weeks ago. And I was really excited about getting them in soon, but turns out he never totally checked out online boo. So I made me some today and just purchased them so they should be here in 4 weeks, hopefully sooner!
I bought the Free Run id2 because I want to ease into barefoot running. I be in these for a while then switch to fives.
The shoes I love the colors I picked cause I love everything bright and fun!
I went online and looked at a bunch of different training schedules and am between two right now. The first one is a ten week. Has 3 rest days a week and has a little higher miles a day.
The next is a twelve week one has 2 rest days a week and has lower miles a day.
I think I might just end up merging the two to make my ownish.
If anyone has done any races and has any tips on training it would be much appreciated!
