Welcome to the team! As far as your question, I think slowing it down on the longer runs will help in building your endurance! Best wishes on your next half!! Kathy

BBA, Howdy, neighbor. I am planning on the Zooma Women's in Bastrop in March and a no frills (no medal, no tee, but it will be timed) at Brazos State Park in Jan.

@Tim... Thank you for those words of advice. The heat and humidity does slow us own, so I lie the way you think of having a summer PR.

No matter how slow you go, you are lapping those on the couch.

I was at that race too! It was hot!!! I have come to realize that my times for Hot races are so much worse than my times for ... not hot races. So I now count a "Summer PR."

My Half PR is 2:06:38 set in May 2012 on a hilly course in Maryland.
My Summer Half PR is 2:27:23 set in San Antonio two weekends ago.

That's my story and I am sticking to it.

Howdy. I started "officially" running last year and laid my claim to running about a month ago. I am finally at a point where I can say that I like to run and look forward to running either solo or with my running group. I told my group that I had no plans to run further than a 10K, 12K max. Well, I ran my first half on my 40th B-day and what a race - Rock N Roll San Antonio. So much fun, even in the heat, and a great medal too. I now have a half planed for Jan, March and April of 2013.

I was running 3 miles straight last year while living in Sacramento. Now, I live in Houston and working my lungs back up to 3 mile runs by running a mile and walking a quarter mile and scaling that walk break down each week. Any advice I can get on increasing my endurance is greatly appreciated.

This running thing may turn out to be tons of fun.
