This week's "long run" was actually prescribed as a fairly short run, but with a Magic Mile. Since this is a Galloway thing, I wasn't sure whether the Magic Mile was supposed to include walk breaks or not. So I did a hybrid - skipping my first and third break, but taking the second one.
Looking at his website now, I think the MM was supposed to be a continuous mile, oops. I guess I'll try it again in a few weeks.
The good news is that today's MM time of 9:47 aligns to the 3:1 ratio that I am using, although I've modified it to be 2:15-0:45. I think if I were to run continuously for my MM, I'd be at the 4:1 ratio on the chart. When that happens, I will probably do 3:00 - 0:45. The 45sec walk breaks seems to work well for me.
Next weekend I am up for an 8 mile run. If my knee does okay for that, I'm fairly certain that my half marathon attempt will be on. If my knee doesn't hold up though, I'll probably abandon the half marathon quest for now.
