Accidental Hiatus

I just realized (by looking at my Nike+ page) that I hadn't run in 10 days....yikes! To be fair, first I was getting sick, then I got sick - but I'm feeling better now - so I'm about to attempt my first run in 10 days. Let's see how that goes.

I'm going to change gears now - and start focusing on specific distances - starting with a 3 mile run today. The other big difference is that I'm going to START SLOW. I realize that I've been starting my runs at my cruising pace - which seems to decrease my endurance. Today I'm going to run my first mile BELOW my goal pace, then increase afterwards.

I have to remind myself that I'm going for distance here, and not time. I realize that having lost two weeks - my goal of running the half-marathon will be that much harder to hit, but I'm going to keep trying. I'm not quite ready to throw in the towel just yet.
