Training Log - Thursday, November 10, 2011

I was struggling to make it out of the door for my run this morning. Temperatures had dipped into the 30s and I wasn't really digging the cold just yet. After a short internal discussion between myself and I, it was decided to just get it done. My training plan called for a one mile warm up and a 4 mile brisk run at sub 7:18 pace followed by a one mile cool down.

I left my house at 6AM sharp with music in my headphones thumping. I maintained the required pace and was feeling only slightly winded at the end. While my training has definitely been going well, I'm just not sure I can maintain a 7 minute pace for the half marathon distance. I think I might opt for the slower end of the required training pace and shoot for a 7:10-7:15 pace for the half on Saturday. Who knows, maybe I'll have something left on the last two miles to push a little. I just don't want to crash and burn.
