Running Newbie worried about making my half marathon goal. (Read 1732 times)

    Good luck! I would get in an easy 3 miler in before the race though either tomorrow or day before especially since you did not run Monday. That many days off and you lose your edge/sharpness and some blood volume!

    Those who try, fail! Those who do what it takes to succeed, succeed!!

      Okay, got in a 3 miler this morning.

       

      Felt great!  Really feel like the taper is working, I ran a 10:02 pace with an average heart rate of 143.

       

      Lots of unspent energy right now.

       

      Forecast is still showing mid 50's for the start and slight chance of rain.

      Am I doing this right?

        Forecast is still showing mid 50's for the start and slight chance of rain.

         

         

        That sounds like perfect running/racing weather to me.  Good luck!

        No excuses....

          I did it!!! Unofficial 1:55:50 on my phone. Ran mile 13 in 7:43! Need to get checked out so no time to post all the details, but the weather was PERFECT!
