Oh...well, hello there. I last posted about starting my official 12 week training plan and here it is, Week 12. So much for blogging along the way. Really though, something in my life had to give and this little space on the internet had to be it. Frankly, I missed it. You. My sparse readers. Training has gone relatively well, I didn't miss a single long run! I missed 2-3 weekday runs total and shortened a few others.
I'm not perfect. (Shocking, no?)
I'm excited and nervous for Sunday's race. If I think about it too long, I'm terrified although I'm not sure what is more nervewracking, leaving the kids for the weekend or the fact that I trained on flats for a hilly race...
Do I have any goals? Yes.
Start out MUCH slower than I have in all of my training runs. I've averaged 11:00/mile pace for all of my long runs up to 10 miles...on VERY flat roads.
Let gravity work for me on the downhills. I'm usually pretty good at this.
Cruise whenever possible.
And lastly, finish without injury.
Oh, and beat my trail times since I've never run a stand alone half on the roads before.
ACK! Wish me luck!
