Running...Running.. Running!

I've finally gotten my act together and have my running stats uploaded! Yay! So, let's see where we stand... shall we?

July (seems so long ago):
Total Miles: 13.96 (ha!!!)
Pace: 13:29

Total Miles: 34.61 (getting there...)
Pace: 13:26 (a slight improvement)
Biking: 16.22 miles, time: 1:44:30

Now for runs so far this month... (Please excuse the quality.. Copy & Paste & Cut are my BFFs)

My pace here lately seems a little slower and all over the place. But, I'm happy to say that I finally feel like I'm beginning to run a little stronger. Last night's run was hotter than it's been in a few weeks, but I ran pretty decent. :) So, I'm pretty happy overall.
As my half marathon is getting closer, I'm beginning to think about goals. So... after much thought, here are my HM goals:
  • Goal A: to finish. Last year, I made it to training week 8 before getting 2 stress fractures.
  • Goal B: to finish under 3 hours. This was last year's goal. (Pace of 13:43)
  • Goal C: to finish under/at 2:45. This is what I'm really shooting for. It's within reach...almost. (Pace of 12:35)

So funny, when I do my goals I shoot for the "A" Goal, but it looks like you are trying for "C".

Keep on moving sister, you are doing GREAT!!

Great running and goals! Don't add to much mileage too quickly or you'll be back to those stress fractures. You are doing great and I have no doubt that A, B, & C are all within your reach!

Great job, girl!

Yup, it is a's in the character of Arabic and means, "Jehovah Rapha". It one of the names of God in the Bible and translates to mean "The Lord that Heals me".

It's good to have several goals like that, so if you don't get your ultimate goal you still reached another goal. When is your half?
