Pretty impressive half marathon debut for some of the top finishers
One of the lessons I have to keep reminding myself: To get faster at long distance, sometimes it is necessary to get faster at the shorter distances (5K, 10K, etc).
On the return to running front, my obervations:
I am really out of shape.
No increase in pain
My average heart rate for a 3-mile run on a treadmill was 178 bpm at 8:30 pace.
My legs are sore
I am running, and that is a good thing..
