Half training: Week 4 – Tuesday

We are back!

I’ll post some photos of lovely Australia soon, but suffice to say we had a great trip.  It was so hot and sunny I was running in shorts.

But now we’re back in Boston and I’m pleased to announce the start of spring.  I saw crocuses and snowdrops (probably some American version – they didn’t look quite right to me) and the snow has basically melted. Yay!

My training plan called for a 3 mile run today. In real money that’s 4.8km. Since that’s not very far for me these days I just did one of my usual routes of approximately that distance.  When I finished it turned out to be 6km (3.8 miles) – oops. Here’s the data:

Distance: 6.1km
Time: 33:16
Pace: 5.27

VERY happy with that.

Here are my km splits:

1. 5:40
2. 5:26
3. 5:26
4. 5:23
5. 5:21
6. 5:22

Tomorrow – 4 miles at half-marathon pace. Translation: 6.4km at a pace of 5.41 (to finish the half in 2 hours – using Runner’s World Pace calculator).

Has spring arrived where you are?
