That goal time for the HM is a bit unrealistic (goal would be anything under my PR of 2:14:09), but I don't feel like changing the plan again.
We'll see how this goes, starting with tonight's workout on tired legs. (And I'll try NOT to look ahead to next week's speedwork that looks really hard! Oddly enough, the mile-repeats are at my 5k pace, which makes me think I am running fairly consistently and should give myself a break. It makes sense that I can't run a HM at a 10-minute pace since that's maybe what I can do for a 10k.)
This week's long run - and next week's long run - will probably be 10 miles, so some more adjusting.
Sunday, I fly to Boston. Thursday, I fly back to Akron. Aaron picks me up at the airport and takes me to Parkersburg where we crash for the night. Friday, we all go to Durham.
A question: Did I really just do the strikeout thing? Ugh.
