long run = nerves about next weekend's half
Sunday, October 06, 2013
I did exactly what I said I was NOT going to do. I got into biking and swimming and skipped a few long runs to go on group rides. I said I was just going to fiddle around on the bike until after my two half marathons this fall. Well I didn't.
Now I'm having a staring contest with a half next weekend and the longest run I've done is 8 miles. I'm toast.
I headed out this morning and ran 6.75 miles in 1:22.
I majored in math so I can do this one in my head. The race has a 3 hour time limit so in theory I should have a 20 minute cushion. It doesn't sound like a lot but it's a little over a min a mile.
This is assuming I can stubborn my way through the second part of the race and not slow down. Also it should be a lot cooler next weekend.
so basically I'm just looking to cross that finish line and get my finisher's medal
let's not talk about the time huh
oh look over there - a shinny ball thing
