I'm still in it. The game of training for a half marathon, that is. I'm done with teaching classes for the semester, I'm home for the next month and my body is cooperating. All in all I think I'll be able to run--not race, mind you--the Hospital Hill half well enough. I'm just approaching this as a late spring half marathon to keep my training momentum moving forward into summer. My goal race resides in the fall months, so I want to keep my mileage up and my speed on the downward slope.
In other random, yet running, news. I have my next marathon slated. Finally. Some friends and I, after a lovely break from marathons, will make a return to 26.2 next fall. Chicago 2013. I'm looking forward to it already! I have no intention of running a marathon before then, but never say never.
My running this week is going well, and while I didn't get in much running mileage last week, I'm comfortable with the replacement workouts I had. Short and sweet, that is pretty much all I've got. VERY exciting, obviously.
