Jill and I will head to the park this morning and get in a long walk. We’re going for an 8 or 9 mile walk at a good pace. We did 6.33 miles yesterday and did it fairly fast and we weren’t really straining; except for the last 50 yards, where we raced each other and that was a tie. Despite a reduced (post marathon) training schedule, we seem to be doing quite well. My plans for a half marathon time of 2:45 seem to be more than just possible. Consider the fact that my last ½ marathon time, the Bidwell ½ marathon in 2002, was 2:48:25. And my first ½ marathon time, in 2001, was 3:04:17. What a difference!
