I feel Kenyan...
So in all my recent running I've been consistently running 9:40-10:00 miles. I could never get over the hump. I've always wanted to run a half marathon in 2:00:00 and have never quite been able to. Well, not counting half of my whole marathon. I did the first split in exactly 2:00:00. Where that came from I have no idea. Two weeks after that I did a half and did it in 2:05:23.
Well I actually made myself do speed work and it paid off!
I went to Dallas this weekend (with some fabulous friends) to run the Dallas White Rock 1/2. My only goal was to do it in under 2:00:00 even if that meant doing it in 1:59:59. :) Well I pushed myself and cranked it out in 1:59:33! Average 9:06 minute mile! Yipee!!!!
