I have done 2 half marathons. I have done the Run Like Hell half marathon in Portland, Oregon and the Eugene Half Marathon in Eugene, Oregon.
I did the RLH in October of 2010.
I did the EHM in May of 2011.
As I get closer to my next half marathon, the Rock n' Roll Portland Half Marathon, I have been thinking about paces and PRs.
As much as I would LOVE to PR in this upcoming half, I don't know if I will be able to from the pacing that I have been doing while training this time around.
Here are my stats from the past halfs.
Run Like Hell Half Marathon
- I finished in 2:51:51 which means I had an average pace of 13:07/mile
Eugene Half Marathon
- I finished in 3:20:04 which means I had an average pace of 15:17/mile
I trained adequately for the RLH, while I barely trained for EHM.
I have been training hard for this upcoming half, but my pace has been hovering around 12:30/mile on short runs and my long run yesterday was an average of 14:51/mile.
As much as I would LOVE to PR, I think my main goal for this half is to be under 3:00:00. Man I feel slow!
