Less than 2 weeks to go...

2 weeks?! Holy cow, it's really coming up. I did a 14.6 long run yesterday morning. It was about 42 outside, and I got to wear my new running shirt (blue with a netted white stripe in the back) and shorts. It was my first run outside since I've been sick: I ran about a 9:42 pace (still felt a bit stuffy), and I think I hit the hills pretty well. There were more hills in that run than there will be on race day.
This was the lowest mileage week I've had since last year. And while this is right on schedule, it felt very bizarre to cut back, and the next 2 weeks will be weird as well. It was good to at least put in some miles today, although I felt as if I was holding a bit.
I'm not sure, but I think I may have pulled a muscle in my right leg yesterday. Luckily, I don't need to run again until Tuesday, so hopefully that will help.

  1. About every 2 weeks I remember that you have been writing here and I come back to read it. And the last couple times is has really inspired me to keep training! I am under a month to my half marathon now....April 5. But, I have been going through cyclical motivation struggles. I am glad you are still trucking and into tapering!!!! Good luck the next two weeks
