- My 'A' Goal: run < 1:45
- My 'B' Goal: run <1:47:48
- My 'C' Goal: run <1:49:19
I may be a bit ambitious with my time goals because I am still working on getting back into running shape after my injury. But I'm #womanup2016 and I'm feeling strong.
Last week I ran the first half of the LA Marathon (purposely DNF'd the full) to determine my baseline fitness. I ran it in 1:56:40. This is without training for a half-marathon and with lots of walking. I walked every waterstop, even some un-official ones. I couldn't tell the difference after awhile and honestly, looked forward to the break. I also walked the steep hills. This tells me that my speed is there, but my running endurance is not.
My last-ditch 'D' goal for the race then is to re-gain my running endurance.
