Half marathon: This week I increased both the weekly mileage and my pace. My long run today was 12 miles, the longest I've ever done. It was not a bad experience because we have recently experienced a drop in temperature. When I went out this morning at about 7:30, it was only like 55 degrees. It was so awesome.
9 weeks down, 7 to go.
Comps: Well, they're done! I took them on Friday. I am so glad it's over. Well, okay, I can't officially say they're done until I find out if I've passed or not, which won't happen for at least another month. But I can take a small rest in any case and move forward with my life, as in getting back to work on my thesis.
