Olive’s Half Training Log-10.30.17 https://t.co/qNr320oZys

On Sunday I talked to my coach about goals for the half. He thinks I’m in a good position to run 1:29, which I guess on paper I am. This cycle has gone well, and the race course is supposed to be fast and flat. The weather has been great and in theory it should be nice for the race. I’ve attempted 1:29 before and blown up, and I think the idea of it ending badly again would just be devastating. This is the most mileage and the hardest workouts I’ve ever done for a half and I’d really like to have something to show for it, so I think I’m going to just see what happens and plan on trying again in early spring if this goes wrong. I tend not to run well when I have a very specific time goal like that, so I’m crossing my fingers that this reverse psychology will work out for me this time too!
