2 weeks till my next half marathon! I'm very excited about this one because I have been involved with a training group. We've been doing speed workouts once a week, and I can truly tell that I'm getting faster and have more endurance! Our trainer, Kyle, predicted that I would shave off about 10 - 12 minutes from my PR for a half marathon! EXCITING!!
We had our long run last Saturday - 12 miles! Really? 12 miles - to train for a 13.1 mile run? That was different for me. I've never run that close to the final mileage. I think the farthest that I've run for training before a 1/2 marathon is 10 or 11 miles.
It was a good run - nice slow pace. I ran with Running Buddy 2- we always seem to have a good conversation. She was heading to a Kentucky Derby Party - I hope she wore a good hat!
So, here's a question for you: How many miles do you train up to for a half-marathon? I've also been thinking about running a marathon in the next year. I was always concerned about getting up there in the mileage. I'm not sure how often I'd have to run 20+ miles.
So, here's another question for all you marathoners out there (I bow down to you)...How many miles do you train up to for a marathon?
Thanks for stopping by today!
