    First, thanks and pleased I may help motivate others! When I too need motivation! Yes I love the Galloway Method, bought the book too. Read my post today on the Galloway SP page Gen Discussion board on why I swear Galloway makes me faster! I run 3 times per week and trying to get motivated to work more on XT. I have been slacking and need to get back working out 5-6 days per week. If I can run a HM, believe me anyone can :) emoticon

    Hey,
    It is hard for me to say which is better . I will run a 5k with no walk breaks in about 30 min. I ran a 15k with walk breaks at a 10:1 ratio , 10 minutes run 1 min walk . For longer races , you have to have a strategy . My strategy during my HM was to survive . This time , I want to succeed . Therefore I am training based on the 10:1 . Also , I use a Garmin to monitor my pace and HR . Don't know if this helps, but so far it works for me.

    PJ,
    Yes , I have run a HM , Cincinnati Flying Pig in May 2009, I did not train enough for this year and ran in the 5k instead. I recently signed up for the USAF HM , in September. My thought process is that once I have committed the $ for the entry fee, I am more likely to train in advance. Let me know what you decide to do and we can check in with each other.

    When is the HM , that you are thinking about? I signed up for one in September. Maybe we could check each other during training.

    It was great wasn't it?! Even though it was hot as all get out! I was 1:55:54 so it wouldn't surprise me if we ran pretty close to each other during the race. I couldn't believe the size of the crowd...it was amazing. I loved the fact that there were all skill levels and shapes and sizes of runners.

    Miles 2 -3 were killers for me. All that was going through my mind was "What were you thinking?! Do you really think you can make 7 more miles?!" Then I found my grove and didn't struggle until mile 7 -8. The last couple of miles flew by with the crowds cheering.

    Definitely a great experience! Hope you had an awesome day as well and are celebrating you achievement!
