Made a decision today. I'm not going to do a half marathon this fall. Well, at least that is how I feel today about it. I did 8 miles at 5/1 intervals. It was tough. My heart rate seemed awfully high the whole time. Avg HR was 161, max HR 172. At my age my max is supposed to be 165. The weather was nice and cool. I feel wonderfully tight and tired tonight, but still....I have a lot going on in the next month or two-- vacation, the hubby's biopsy, and possibly a trip to Scotland to see the kids.
Here are today's stats.
So, it feels a little disappointing to say I'm not going to do one this fall. I plan to keep my three weekly runs going at least three miles each. Can't imagine not doing that.....and I do have plans for two 5ks for the next couple of Saturdays. Not my favorite race but maybe I will focus on getting better on those.
