I haven’t been strictly following a certain half marathon schedule but mostly it’s been a version of Hal Higdon’s intermediate schedule and this one http://www.logyourrun.com/index.php?option=com_program&task=view&Itemid=65&graphics&start_date=2011-03-17&type&id=284 . I did three miles today and it was a tempo run. I ran easy for the first mile and built up my speed for the second mile and some of the third mile. Then I ran easy for the last part of the third mile. My splits were 8:31, 8:10, and 8:35. Not bad, I guess.
It was a nice day to run and was already hot at 61 degrees Fahrenheit at 8:52 in the morning. That’s hot for Oregon right now! I think it’s supposed to reach 90 degrees. Well, hope you have a great day! Stay cool! 🙂
Today’s run was a four miler. It was a nice day out and is supposed to get around 82 degrees out later on. According to Garmin Connect it was 50 degrees out when I was running but felt much hotter. I ran the four miles at a pretty fast pace. My last mile was really fast at 8:11 min. I had passed a runner at the light and then she sped past me a little later. I thought I was fast, she’s a speed demon lol. I think that’s what made me go faster on my last mile. Well, five more days until my half marathon!
Are you running or working out today? Happy Tuesday!
