Smiles From the Running Gods

I slept through run #1 of my half marathon training schedule on Monday morning.  It was supposed to be a short 2 miles before work, but due to my disrupted sleep this weekend (My lack of electricity, thanks to rogue thunderstorms, made me a nomad Friday and Saturday night.  Luckily, I have gracious friends who let me shack at their places.), it didn't happen.

Luckily for me, this was my CrossFit WOD this morning.  With the 800m warm up and the 6x400 m sprints, I completed 2 miles exactly.  Coincidence?  Maybe. I'll take it as a good sign!  I was worried about starting training off on the wrong foot by missing my first run, but the running Gods were smiling down on me and made sure I fit it in.

Here is what my training schedule leading up to the half looks like for now.  As things come up, I will adjust accordingly.
