A half marathon is going to be tough
Yesterday I started my training regiment for the 1/2 marathon I want to run in November. This is going to be a tough thing, 13.1 miles is a long distance to run! My goal is to run the whole thing and com in under 2:15:00, keeping a 10 minute mile pace, but that will be really tough. I can easily run a shorter distance at that pace (yesterday I started the training runs and went 4 miles in 40 minutes) but I hope I can build up to the half marathon distance in time for the run. Fortunately, some runner family members have given me lots of advice on how to train and I am working on a training plan that should have me doing well if I can stick to it all.
