What does a marathon runner call a half marathon? SPEEDWORK. I'm off to TC early tomorrow morning for the Bayshore 13.1 mile half marathon. I've done the marathon a couple times and it wipes me out for a good 2-3 weeks. so, this year i'm trying the half to just get a good hard workout in. I'm HOPING for 7 min/mile and i think i could have done it if i hadn't been sick about two weeks ago. I lost 5-6 days of training and haven't been on a long one since.... so we'll see. 7:10's will be acceptable, but any slower and I won't be a happy camper.
