I did not meet that goal. I did, however, decrease my race time from 3:45:56 for the 2013 Tinkerbell Half Marathon to 3:35:23 for the 2014 event. That is 10 minutes and 33 seconds faster than last year and only 5 minutes and 23 seconds short of my goal.
The time I spent training at the gym did help with the goals that I had set, to some extent, although not as much as I expected.
Wednesday was the first session with the YouFit coach since the Tinkerbell Half Marathon. For a warm up I usually get on the elliptical machine for about 20 minutes, then have the session with the trainer and a cool down on the tread mill. The elliptical actually felt like it was easier than prior to the Tinkerbell Half Marathon. Could all the walking in Anaheim for the four days that I was there have helped to get past a physical block?
Next up – the Walt Disney World Wine and Dine Half Marathon.
