Had my ‘B’ race today for my (first) Half Marathon training… a 15K… my first time racing this long of a distance, and since it was all big long hills, I decided to not shoot for my 7’27” race pace, and go for 7’45”, as to not push too hard. Well I hit 7’34”, even with the hills and finished 1:10:27!! Super stoked that I was able to manage my climbing effort and then speed down the hills to finish faster than I expected!! My first Half Marathon is in 4 weeks, and it’s flat, so I feel good about hitting that planned race pace!! And my body feels great, thanks to Steve & Patrickand Run Smart Online!
