Just a quick post to shout from the rooftops that today’s half marathon went well for me! I came in at 1:53:34, which is a PR by 1:36 over my OC Half Marathon time one year ago. It turned out to be a good decision to run the Spring Blast Half Marathon as a training run.
The target training pace was 8:35 (marathon pace) and I came close to that with an average of 8:40. I can tell you there’s no way I would have run that fast if I had not been racing.
I feel good and am resting up now but will post a full recap and review sometime soon!
