This is the beginning of a new dream. I am nervous and unsure. Even worried - that I will not be successful. What if I fall? What if injure myself badly? What if I ultimately fail?
I never EVER thought, I'd dream a dream like this - the half marathon dream. Running 21.1k on a beautiful trail like the one the Kaveri Trail Marathon soil offers in an opportunity par excellence. Some of you may remember I ran the 10k last year and resolved then that I should atleast try the half, if not the full marathon!
So here I am. I've adapted the Hal Higdon plan to suit my schedule. You can find my training schedule here. Only the day before yesterday I ran a 6k route and felt fairly fine. So I'm going to take a deep breath, cross my fingers and get down to business!
I'm sure I'm going to need some hard lashes on days I want to be lazy, lots of encouragement, sensible eating (to avoid injury) and some hard talk to stay grounded. Making a plan is easy. Sticking with it is the hard part. Brace yourself and join me on my journey to fulfilling my dream of a half marathon!
