When I started the half-marathon training plan on July 31st, my first
run was three miles; I did it in 42:56 (14:18 min/mile).
Today my short run was three miles; I did it in 39:41 (13:13 min/mile).
Admittedly, I wasn't pushing on July 31, and I was pushing today.
Today's run equaled my best race pace in this temperature, and even beat
my pace in the Iron Girl 5K last December (which was my first race
ever). The only time I've run faster than I did today at this distance
was the New Years Eve race last year, where I did three miles in 39:02
(13:01 pace), but that was in 55 degree weather.
I feel good.
Crossing the starting line is 90%.
Crossing the finish line is the other 90%.
