Sunday's Sioux Falls Half Marathon is my 13th consecutive Sioux Falls Half Marathon and my 32nd half marathon. This is the first time ever that I'm doing the race as a training run for a goal race later in the fall. The workout is 13 miles with the last three at lactate threshold pace.
My plan is to run the first ten around 10:30 pace with the last 3.1 near 9:00 pace. If I run that exactly as planned, I think that puts me around 2:12. Last year I predicted a 2:12:08 for my finishing time (which was VERY ambitious, lolz) so it'd be kind of fun to run close to that time. But truly I just want to have a good time and get to cheer on a bunch of my friends and get a finisher medal after running my long run!
