THE NEXT RACE: JACKSONVILLE MARINE CORPS HALF MARATHON (Adjusted)

Hey all!  I hope I’m finding you well.

I decided to take an “off-season break,” so I’m adjusting my training for the Marine Corps Half.  I noticed that since I’ve trimmed down the miles, I’ve been losing my mental strength; it was easy to skip a run.  For those who know me, that behavior is just not me.  I also noticed that during this “off-season break” I wasn’t as happy.  I think it’s a perfect time to start training again.  Don’t you think?

It’s sweltering out here in Florida so I really need to keep to these paces below.  No more 7’s or 8’s for a while.  If you see me post a run on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram below a 9-minute-mile on Easy or Long Run days, feel free to politely remind me to SLOW the EFF DOWN.  Thanks for keeping me accountable!

So…  May I present the Updated… Jacksonville Marine Corp Half Marathon Training Schedule (courtesy of RunnersWorld.com’s Smart Coach)!  My goal is to finish under 1:50:00.  Heheheh!
