I'm training for the 3m Half marathon and the Lone Star sprint/Half distance triathlons, so I need to seriously get my running back into the shape it was almost three years ago, if my knees will let me.
My prior long run distance was 9:39-miles about a month ago, in a pace of 10:36 min/mile, yeah I know, pretty slow. Today I clocked 1:54:05 for 11.22-miles, which is 10:10 min/mile. Given I wasn't really trying for speed, I'm happy that I went further at a slightly faster pace. Looks like I'll be ready for the distance come 3M Half marathon, how much pain in my knees, especially the right one is anyone guess.
After yesterdays run, even 24-hours later, the bone on the lower part of my right is very painful. I've iced it and taken ibuprofen, hopefully a swim will ease it a little.
Still, the time about is on target. My PR for a half marathon is 2:05:25 at the Danbury Half Marathon in 2006. After that I got my PR at Half IM Florida in June '06 and my PR(only) for a full IM distance race in July '06.
