Thanks for the welcome Sara and Kirsten. It's inspiring to hear you both did half marathons without walking in the same or less time training than I will do.
Sara-I'll start with my arms like you suggested...I know for sure they flap about in front of me and I definitely haven't been holding them at a 90 degree angle...I'll work on that first. Thanks for the stretching advice...I had no idea to warm up first, so I'll give that a go tomorrow.
And yet another question....I think Hal Higdon's training gives you 12 weeks...should I start much earlier and then just repeat the few weeks of it until the race day?
I can't even pretend to understand that I know the difference between the training training pace and race pace.
