Today was officially Day 1 of Rock 'n' Roll New Orleans training.
And guess what?
I didn't run.
Our college's soccer team advanced to the state championship yesterday afternoon, and today was their final game against our all-time arch enemy. I teach or have taught about 1/2 of the girls on the team, so I really wanted to be there. The game was about an hour and a half away, so that pretty much took the afternoon light. By the time we got home tonight, it was, of course, pitch black dark.
Does the time change thing freak anybody else out as much as it does me?
I'm following the Beginner's Half-Marathon Training Plan, which is 12 weeks.
Today I should have run 2 miles.
Rest on Monday.
And, then 3 miles on Tuesday.
Since our girls won the game in "brilliant" style as their Irish coach would say, I will happily run my 2 miles tomorrow and follow up with 3 on Tuesday.
I'm beyond excited about my first 1/2!!
