Three Things Thursday

1.  I am so happy to report that I didn't gain any pounds between Thanksgiving and the New Year.  I was really worried considering the fact that my half marathon training (and the high miles associated) came to an end Thanksgiving weekend.  On top of that all the holiday stuff.  Yeah .. I was worried.

2.  I have officially registered for this:

And this week was the start of my training plan.  I have opted for the Hal Higdon Novice 2 this time around.  I like that it means less miles during the week since I run those over my lunch break at work.  Instead I'll be running longer miles over the weekend.  We'll see how this goes. Plus it includes a little bit of speed work.

3.  I'm wondering whether the goal of 4 (maybe 5) half marathons in 2012, considering I've only actually ever run 1 in my life is too lofty?  I hope not.  The four are spread out really well.  It's only that fifth one in there that is a little close to another one, which is why it's a questionable one. 


How did you do with weight management over the holidays?

Do you feel relief from the structure of a training plan like I do?  I LOVE them.

  1. Nice job maintaining! I've gained 3 since Turkey day, but that seems to be my norm. I either maintain or gain 3. Although I only weigh myself once a week, so I don't have a final report.

    I think your race plan sounds great. I had planned 3 all nicely spaced out but added a few, and somehow ended up with 2 in October. I'm not sure how that's going to go. I just hope to stay injury free.

    Happy Thursday.


Thanks so much for stopping by!
