Marathon Monday: Day 1 of my 12 Week Half Marathon Training Schedule

I've officially completed my 12 week 5K training program and 4 weeks worth of a 10K training program.

I am now 12 weeks away from race day for the Columbus Half Marathon.  I have another 5K scheduled for later this week, a quarter marathon in August, a 4 miler in September, and the Half Marathon on October 19th.

Below is what I have to look forward to.  On the plus side, today is an off day :)

    1. Thanks!! This looked a lot worse 4 months ago when I first started training. Now that I can comfortably make it through 6 miles, I think I will make it.
