New England Half Marathon Training Journal
Race day tomorrow, friends! I'm getting ready to settle down for the night and figured I'd share my two runs from the week.
October 6: 3 miles • 33:05 • 11:02 avg pace
October 8: 3.04 miles • 32:23 • 10:40 avg pace
I've been doing a run 5, walk 1 this week. Also pausing my watch at stoplights so it doesn't count when I'm stopped and waiting to cross (which at one light was, I swear, a solid 5 minute wait).
The plan for tomorrow is to run 2:00 and walk 1:00. My goal is 2:30-2:35, but I'll be happy with anything under 2:45.
The forecast is... not bad! I'm running in my cropped leggings and a tank top.
I'm bringing some gummies as a mid-race snack. I'm waiting to hear from my friend Eric about if he wants to stop for a bagel along the way since we have to be on the road at 7 am and won't be starting until almost 10 am. I'm betting we stop at a Dunks on the way. Anyway, I'm off to bed. 6 am and I aren't great friends. Wish me luck!
