Well, I'm into week 3 of my half-marathon plan, but a few changes.... My achilles tendonitis is back again, and I am walking all my mileage. and due to the achilles, I've decided to not do Grete's Great Gallop in October. Nor will I be doing the Green Mountain Half the week after that.
Instead, I'm registered for the NYRR Ted Corbitt 15k in December - that gives me 2 more months to recover from/deal with the achilles problem, and 2 more months to very slowly build my mileage to 15k instead of a half distance. Probably a better and wiser choice. What a concept!
A December race also gives me 2 additional months to work on taking off some of the extra weight I'm carrying around. I rejoined WW last weekend and am going to meetings, not just doing the online program. I don't participate much in the meeting, but going to the Saturday a.m. meeting gets my head in the game for the weekend. I go to the meeting, then go straight to the gym on my way home. A healthy and active Saturday morning, and it also gets me up and going way earlier on a Saturday than I normally would be.
