I’m pretty happy with how my training is going for the upcoming St Louis Half Marathon April 15. I still want to get a bit faster to run a sub-7 minute pace, but I have enough time to add more speed workouts.
I have been getting 25 mile weeks in, but hope to up that to 35 miles for the next few weeks. After April 15 I will be increasing the weekly mileage for the marathon in June (40-50 mile weeks). I am typically a low mileage runner, mostly because I get bored easily and do other activities besides running (before it was soccer), so this will be a pretty big change for me. I hope the hard work pays off!
