That's my Nike+ page. As you can see, I am tapering in preparation for the half-marathon on May 20. I cannot believe it is only 12 days away.
Yesterday I took a 3.1 mile run - it took 36:25, for a pace of 11:44.
Today I wasn't going to run, but decided to go out for a quick 2 miles - 22:54, pace of 11:25.
I haven't run *only* two miles since I started training for the half-marathon... in January. I think I have trained for too long. I think I was actually in better shape back in February!
Question: I hope to get a garmin this weekend. My kids are getting me a Mother's Day gift certificate for REI - and between that and my dividend from last year's purchases, I think I have the garmin pretty well paid for... the cheaper one anyway. Anyone have any advice?
