The Road: 11/16/11: Disney Half Marathon Update

Posted: November 16, 2011 in The Road

I’m progressing nicely now that I’ve set a rhythmic walking pace that works. Check this out:

Saturday at 125 Beats Per Minute (all walking, no jogging)

Not bad. Last night I went back to Cranes Roost for walking at 125 BPM and we jogged the bridges. It worked out okay. Still not where I need to be but my legs are strengthening and I seem to be less out of breath.

I’m pretty happy overall. I’ve done a few official 5k runs and my times were always right between 59 and 60 minutes. Last night I shaved off a few minutes. I hope 2012 will be the year of 40 to 45 minute 5k races for me. I plan to walk 30 minutes tomorrow night. Just slow and deliberate for 30 minutes. On Thursday I’m shooting for 3 to 5 miles again. Friday will be a day to rest and then I wake on Saturday morning and Matt and I are going to attempt to make it 11 miles from Oviedo to the Fashion Square Mall. Wish me luck!

Talk to you later!
