Half Marathon Pace and Tempo pace (Read 277 times)



    I was training for this half marathon. The time I decided to enter the race, there was only 7 weeks left. I didn't have enough time to train for a full, so I entered the half. Prior to that, I only ran 10 miles a week since the first marathon in last May, so I didn't have the base to tackle a full this time. I ramp up very fast, from 10  miles per week to 45 miles in 5 weeks. Luckily I didn't get injured this time.


    I don't have a plan at the moment. I may think to run a marathon in fall to qualify for the Boston.


    Duh!  I didn't realize the half was your goal race.  Very impressive time.  You're obviously doing something right.  (Actually, probably a lot of things right. Smile ).

    Consistently Slow

      I did it in 1:28:20. The average pace was 6:45/mi. The elevation was 1033 ft in total. It was hard at the end, particularly the last 2 miles, It felt like just hill after hill. My first 10k was 41 minutes.


      Run until the trail runs out.
