Try to beat or at least match closely my half time from early last year. I've got 3 months till Nov 2nd....Get me in shape, Hal!!

Reed Lilley anyone have any good ...

Track and share your training!

Dailymile makes it easy to keep track of your workouts. Map your routes and share with a community of active people.

Anyone have any good tips on sites to check out for figuring out your goal paces for half marathons? I've seen a few pace calculator sites and those are great - any info is helpful. I just wondered if there was some general reading I could do to get a better feel for how I should be running long runs, and ultimately pacing myself on race day? Thanks for any tips!! :-)

    have you checked out Macmillan? they give a great amt of info on predicting based on your current times, and then give you how fast you should be running your longs and tempos etc...

    McMillan! The calculator, and his explanation of training zones are fantastic.

    Thanks for the votes on McMillan!! It looks like maybe I could step up my weekly paces a bit, and not feel too bad about trying to slightly push the weekend long runs for the last few miles. However...based on a 5k race time a couple weeks ago, I'm supposed to PR at my half Nov 2nd! LOL. We'll see about that! Might be asking a bit much!! Thanks again!!

    Reed, don't forget that the race pace calculators are only supposed to tell you what you "could" do if the right training is there. And that's the key. The training has to be in place. If you've got a 5K race pace that's predicting a 3:30 in the marathon, that will only happen if there's adequate training to support covering that longer distance. (Just a little fine point to be aware of as you use the calculator.)
