More 1/2 Marathon Training

Week 10: Run Around the Rock at Stone Mountain! This is ATCs annual run at stone mountain. Its a circular, hilly, loop course, 5 miles per loop. I did the 10 mile run : 1:39:55
It was a gorrrrrgeous route. The leaves were beautiful orange, yellow, and red drifting down all around me. First 5 miles went great...then came the rain and the cool air... about mile 7 the sky opened up and gave us all a gift, rain, in sheets and in my eyes...but it was still one of my better runs. Kept the 6mph pace and followed the coach's advice about lengthening my stride in the last 2 miles.

Week 11: Pace Run thru Buckhead. 11 Mile Run 1:49:--. It hurt, I hurt, I did amazing the first half of the route better than my 10 min mile pace, but coming back, it hit me, hard. I've been eating the powerbar smoothie bars on my runs, but I don't think I hydrated enough the day before this time. So this weekend is our 12 Mile run, I think I'll try and take it easy, I don't want to injure myself. I did find out I'm quicker than the 2:15 pace group, but slower than the 2:00 pace group. My goal is to finish in 2:10 but no later than 2:15.

2 more training weeks until the big RACE!

Health and Happiness
