      I usually wear my GARMIN and try to pace myself according to the pace I run at..I've also ran with a pace group and have found that VERY helpful cos I tend to run faster and I don't realize it..they will reign you in and help you keep up..most of all run your own race, your own pace and enjoy every minute :) you will be great!

      I've done a lot of races now and for me it all depends on how I feel on race day. If my legs feel good and my breathing is good, then I can push it hard. It's all about effort level and not pace. If you normally run at an 8:00/mi but on any given day it feels harder than usual, then you should just run at an effort you feel like you can complete the distance with. Using the heart rate monitor during training can help you figure out your high-end aerobic zone, usually your target effort.

    A rubbish run! I actually turned around for the first time ever but the cold was hurting my chest too much to breathe so I figured it could wait til another day

  4. RUN
    good 4 km

    Just testing how I feel before signing up for the half. Not that 4km is an indicator but I needed to get out and test this chest infection :D

  5. Runners I need your opinion please ... My last run was 10.5 miles 2 weeks ago and I was about 8 weeks into a 14 week half plan. I stopped as I was worried about injury and kept getting sick. But to... read more

      If you're not sick anymore, I say go ahead and sign up. You got a couple of weeks to train and you should do just fine.

      Nothin' wrong with giving yourself a break. May help in the long run, so to speak.

  16. RUN
    5.5 km

    It started raining which always makes me want to run! I should've steered my route clear of the city and the many drunken racegoers but it was still a lovely run in the rain :)
