- It might not seem like much, but I did a test run with a 2:15/0:45 interval instead of a 2/1 and it went well. I was planning on working my way closer to something like a 3/1 interval, but after reading some stuff on Galloway's site it seems like a :45 walk break should be sufficient. So I'll go with this for awhile and see how it feels. It's the same percentage running/walking, just with more frequent, but shorter, walk breaks.
- I also hit my total mileage goal for the week, although not quite exactly as scheduled. Good enough for me though.
- This weekend I realized that there is another alternative for a local half-marathon: NMBPS Run for the Zoo. The race I had been targeting, the Albuquerque half marathon is on 19-Apr, and this one is a few weeks later on 04-May. This may be the perfect solution to my rocky start at half-marathon training - push it out a few weeks! Otherwise, I'll probably plan to run the 10K at Run for the Zoo. I don't need to take action on this right now, but I will need to make up my mind in the next month or so for sure.
- I'm really struggling to find motivation without my usual running partners (two of them have now moved away!). It seems like I'm going to have to do my long runs solo. Ugggggggh.
