Countdown: 5 weeks

Till the Dam Marathon that I plan on running.  Well, not the full marathon - the half.

I've always wanted to run a marathon and wanted to be realistic with starting with a half.  And gaining 46 pounds during my pregnancy was great motivation to train for one to help loose that weight. 

I'm one pound away from my pre-pregnancy weight.  I've been hovering at 2-3 pounds to go for the last 2 months!  Annoying.

I'm worried about being able to run since I've not been able to train properly for the last almost month and a half!  Every Saturday I've been busy and that is my long run day. 

Then the last 2 weeks I've been sick.  I ran 3 miles Friday and it wasn't very easy.  So I decided I'm going to work super super hard and after two weeks I should know how easy it will be.  Worst case I run the 10K.

I ran 4 miles today and it wasn't so bad.  I'll do 5 Wednesday, 4 1/2 Thursday and 7 Saturday. 

Good luck to me!

Wow I can't even RUN a mile without wanting to throw up! Walk sure, but run? NO WAY!

Usually I have to go first thing in the morning or else it never happens, at least with the long runs that can take a couple hours. Training is so time consuming.
