Half Marathon Training Run 3.3

Today's run was scheduled and while I didn't really feel like doing it at first, I am glad that I did.

Just Closed... [Conversations with Cosmo]

Conversations with Cosmo: At Home with an African Grey ParrotConversations with Cosmo: At Home with an African Grey Parrot by Betty Craige
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

After reading Alex and Me I thought it would be fun to read more books about African Greys. I had heard about Cosmo from online websites and thought this would be a fun book. We did enjoy it for the most part, but it was a bit repetitive in parts, which led to my rating to go down from 3 stars to 2. I think it's a good first book from Betty Jean Craige and if she does write more about Cosmo, I would most likely read it.

2012 Mileage Goal Progress 1

Checking my progress toward my goal of running 400 miles this year.

400 miles means I need to run 100 miles every three months.

That means by the end of this month I should reach 100 miles.

Currently I am at 53.92 miles.

That means I need to get 46.08 miles during the remainder of this month.

If I keep to my half schedule I will run 72 miles over the remainder of this month, which will put me a bit over goal and will otherwise keep me right on track.

Here's hoping things go well!

Half Marathon Training Run 3.2

Today I did NOT have a run planned. However, I did NOT let that stop me!

After a rather disappointing shopping trip today I got the swift kick I needed to really amp up my workouts and healthy lifestyle.

I have gained approximately 30 pounds over the course of law school and two attempts at the Bar exam.

30 pounds which I hope to shed.

I do not have a particular timeline for doing such, but I will not give up!

Today's run statistics:
3.15 miles in 40:00
