I have been feeling a bit nervous because I have a half Marathon in 2 weeks and I have done no real training for it. I decided I was going to do the light run today at an easy pace just to see how I feel. I kept myself at an 8 minute pace and felt nearly no fatigue when I was done running. My goal for the next 2 weeks is to get a decent amount of runs in, whether it be a quick 2 mile run or the real goal, a 10 mile run (if I get that much free time) and just go out for the half with the goal of having fun. I figure I'll start out going an 8:30-9 minute miles and if after the first half is over if I feel like I'm going strong I'll pick up the pace. Hopefully I break 2 hours! Yes, I'm THAT out of shape.
Here's the like to the half, entries are still available.
