I'm back in the half marathon business! I just ran the Saints and Sinners Half Marathon on Saturday, September 26, 2015. This was the first half I have attempted in almost a year and my main goal was just to finish the race without injury, I'm thrilled that I was able to do that! I had no time . . .
I've had a lot on my mind the last few weeks, too much in fact. My brain has just been spinning with running running running running like an obsession. One of my running friends commented that I think too much. He said I need to just run by "feel." Don't focus on times. Run "naked" without gadgets. . . .
I started out 8 years ago with marathon training as most beginners would, by using stock training plans found in books or on websites. Over time, I was able to take an hour off my marathon PR due to "getting the mileage in," and adapting to running in general, then the improvements tapered off. . . .
