Back under 100 minutes for the 1/2 marathon today. A good result and my best time since the end of 2008 – and my third fastest 1/2 marathon. Still a bit off my best time of 1:33:53, in the first Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon in 2008, but getting there.
A week of more fast runs this week:
- 10 miles with 4 x 1 mile intervals
- 6 miles with 5km fast
- 10 miles at (slow) recovery pace
And then 1/2 marathon on day 4. Not much rest this week so far but good runs and under 100 minutes for the 1/2 marathon after 3 consecutive days running.
A great day to run today and the perfect weather, no more long sleeves and hat needed. Sun out and blue skies. Nice!
Rest day tomorrow, as in no running but a Lego-tastic day planned, at Legoland Windsor for their Star Wars Invasion Weekend, complete with the guys from the UK Garrison (part of the 501st Legion) and a squadron or two of Stormtroopers and the rest of the gang. Happy days!
