I’ve finally signed up for a half-marathon! We’re going to do Boston’s Run to Remember on May 26, 2013.
This leaves 94 days, or just over three months, or 13 weeks, to train.
How far is a half-marathon again? 21.1km. And how long will it take me to run it? Using Runner’s World Race Times Predictor calculator, and entering 1hr for 10km, a pace I know I can do, I get:
Predicted time: 2:12:23.
Happily in the past week I’ve done three runs – two over 7km each. It’s been pretty darn cold here – and running in snow presents its challenges (namely hidden ice).
This was our run on Monday:
Luckily the path at Fresh Pond was mostly cleared:
So we now just need a training plan…
I’m going to convert these distances to kilometers, add some dates, and see if there are any 5km or 10km races in Boston at the right time.
Bring it on!
