Comments: I timed myself on a mile on the track, as part of a 1 mile virtual race.  I don't think I've run a timed mile since I was in school.  I did OK, especially considering I ran 4.5 miles to warm up (and then 3.6 to cool down.)

Distance: 13.1 miles

Time: 2:07

 

 

Pace: 9:41 per mile

Stretch: Yes

 

 

 

 

 

 

Weekly mileage: 13.1 miles

Cumulative mileage: 441.8 miles

 

 

 

Tomorrow: Cross training

 

Comments: I was viewing this half marathon as a 13 mile pace run.  I went out way, way too fast.  My first mile was 8:30!  However, I never let my pace drop below 10:00, and my overall pace was OK.  Now I just need to run twice that distance in twice that time!

Comments:  I didn't take the day totally off.  I biked with my daughter out to StuffMart, about a six mile round trip.  But that wasn't exercise.  That was errands.
