How am I really already halfway through my Shamrock Half Marathon training? It feels like I just started training for this race! Its hard to believe how quickly time is flying by, and how soon my fourth half marathon will be here.
The other thing that’s hard to believe is how much faster I’m getting with my running. I had some stellar runs this week! On Thursday, I was only 17 seconds shy of completing a 5k run in under 30 minutes. And on Saturday I averaged a sub 10:00 min/mile pace during my 4 mile run, and also ran my fastest mile to date!
I haven’t given much thought yet to what my goal finish time is for Shamrock, but I’m optimistic that if my runs continue to go as well as they have been lately and that I’ll be able to strive for a pretty lofty goal on race day.
