Well I completed both Sprint Triathlons. Nothing spectacular, but I at least dropped the run split under 30 minutes for the 5k. That was a major goal. End of race report.
My speed work in the Half Marathon training is going pretty well, but the long runs are hit or miss. I have a 10 miler that I held 10:15 for the last 6 miles, followed by a 9 miler where I couldn’t keep a 10:45 pace going and had to walk parts.
This coming weekend I am shooting for an 11 miler somewhere around 10:30 pace. I think the trick for me is getting out early and getting it done.
