A pretty good start to half marathon training, and a pretty good start to the new year. For the moment, I’m not following any sort of plan. I’m running some shorter runs during the week and a longer run on the weekends. That’s the only plan at the moment. Probably around mid-February or March I will start throwing in some structured speed work and tempo runs, but, for now, it’s just whatever I feel like doing.
That said, on Friday’s run, I did 5:1 intervals where the 5 minute portions were done around tempo pace (maybe a little slower, but I am a little slower since the last time I calculated my tempo pace). It felt good!
