I was concerned about my fifth half marathon in my series of five for my 50th year, after last Saturday's crappy run.
But today I did a timed 5K in 33:47 while keeping my heart rate under 165 bpm, which is a sustainable pace for me.
If I could keep that up for 13.1 miles it would get me a 2:22 half marathon, which would be a PR by 4 minutes. That's not terribly likely, but it's not impossible, either.
I'm just glad I can run again without my heart rate going through the roof or coughing out nasty things.
On to the inaugural Bridge to Bridge Half Marathon on Saturday!!
