One of the only useful pieces of advice Charlie Sheen has indulged all of us with was the quote, “Nike’s slogan doesn’t say just try it, Just Do It.” I think that’s a good slogan for life, I just wish it would have come from a more respectable source.
This past week I continued with my half marathon training. With officially less than one month to go, I continued increasing both my weekly mileage and the mileage on my long distance run.
The long run is up to 8.5 miles now, and I think I may try to jump to 10 miles next weekend. I felt great on the run, but hit a wall at about 7 miles. So far I haven’t been running with a water belt and energy packets, but I think I may begin next weekend and hopefully that will help me clear that 7 mile wall. The run took me 1 hour 15 minutes, with an average pace of 9 minute miles! I was so suprised and pleased with my time, but I think I may try and force myself to slow it down to help boost endurance. Maybe I won’t hit the wall if I run slower?
