Beginner all over again
I started this thread a year ago
And I'm please to share I did just recently Finish my first HM
My log is public, and on about 10 mpw training, very low mileage.
Run/Walk race day was about 3/1, but I more often Just Walked extra when I plain ole needed the walk breaks.
2:34 finish time
11:40 pace avg
5-mile split 1:01 at 12:16 pace avg
Very negative splits. I held to maximum training pace first 4 miles (12:30),
did the 5th mile at 12:00
and then just ran the rest of the race a bit faster as I went
and had to just Hold Steady pace the last 3 miles.
So I did complete the HM on very low weekly mileage. Didn't win any awards of course, but did "Finish" as the training plan indicated
