Week 14 Half-Marathon Training Program
I had an ok but not great week training last week. I missed one run due to just not getting up in the morning. The nice thing is that the weather has finally broken so I was able to enjoy some cooler weather.
Monday - 3.41 mile/57 minute walk (16:36/mile).
Wednesday - 5.4 mile 70 minute run (12:57/mile). The pace includes 5 minutes warm up and 5 warm down and a 3:1 throughout the run. It felt nice and fast (for me).
Saturday - 5.46 mile 69 minute run (12:38/mile). The pace includes 5 minute warm up, 5 warm down and magic mile of 10:02. The rest of the way was 3/1 or 2:30/1.
Sunday - 3.86 mile 65 minute walk (16:50/mile). A lovely walk. I wore a long-sleeve technical shirt and actually tucked my hands inside the ends for the first half. It was wonderful.
Now I'm on taper week and looking forward to it. I've got 2 runs and an easy walk and then the race next Sunday. I want to drive the race course on Saturday as I am not familiar with that part of town. My goal for the race is 2:35-2:40.
