Race countdown

Well, the San Jose Rock & Roll half marathon has really crept up on me. Just 5 days to go and I'm in the taper zone and trying not to be really concerned that I don't feel fitter and more ready.

The good news is, I know I can trot 13.1 miles. It's just I was hoping to go considerably faster than 11 minutes per mile and ideally beat my previous half marathon time. But I still don't feel like that silly cough has left me, and the last couple of times I've been out, running "pace" (10 minute miles) has been really hard.

So the plan this week is for early nights, better eating, and lots and lots of water!


  1. "Early nights, better eating, and lots and lots of water"--sounds like a good plan for just about everyone!

  2. Thanks, Crabby. I'm tempted to try caffeine and high-octane jet fuel, but maybe I'll save those for the full marathon.

  3. Stopping over from SITS. I like to check out the blog on roll call before me. Good luck with your running.
