1/2 makes 3

I just sucked it up and registered for the Pilgrim Pacer half.  It is November 10th.  My goal is to run 6 miles on Wednesday.  Then 12 miles on the 29th.  I'm not planning on PR'ing on the Pilgrim Pacer.  I may try to beat my 2:12 from last year.  I don't think I will get under 2:03.  I will try but if I can't it won't be the end of the world. 

I am also registering for the Garmin Marathon.  I just realized tonight that registering for the Garmin Marathon means that I don't get a break from marathon training.  Which is fine...who am I kidding I might as well keep training.  

I started counting my calories again today.  It has been easy keeping around 1400.  I did 30 minutes of Jillian Michaels and ran/walked 2 miles.  It felt absolutely amazing!!

So my weekly weigh in....162.2.  I would be happy with next week being 159.  Just seeing a 5 in the tens place would be nice.  It's been a few long weeks since I've seen the 150's. 


  1. You can take a break from the Pilgrim Pacer to the start of the new year. You would still get a full 16 weeks of training if you start the first week of the new year.

  2. Bryan I know that I could take a break. However going into the Garmin I would like my longest run to be 22. The schedule I followed last time was 18 weeks and the longest run was 20. We will see how I feel after the Pilgrim Pacer.
