Last Training Run!!
Today was my last training run before the big day. I can't believe it. When I signed up for my first half marathon ever I had 288days 11hours and 39minutes for my training till the 50th Annual Scotiabank Calgary Marathon (June 1st, 2014) and now it's only 001:06:45:20. Woohoo! I am so excited. Can't wait for Suuuuundayyyy!!
I took a step back from running in the last couple of weeks of my training. I just didn't feel a 1oo% and didn't want to push myself to hard. I did go biking and rollerblading and walking beside my training.
I started my half marathon training on March 4th with a 4K run after my partially torn ligament was healed. I did my first 4K in 38:05min (Pace 09:16/Km) and today my last run 3K in 18:15min (Pace 06:01/Km). I wasn't always happy with my daily results but I am damn proud of how far I have come.
Here are a few photos of where I have been training.
I started my training at a gym because I was still a bit scared running outside. I sprained my ankle running outside and slipping on ice. After the pathway was clear - I loved running outside.

I am so happy to be back in the world of running =)
Big THANK YOU goes to my awesome friend and mentor Michelle. You are the best. I couldn't have done this without you. I've learned a lot about myself through running. THANK YOU!
