My first half marathon took 2:02 to finish. Afterwards my feet were too tender to walk back to the hotel. It felt like someone slapped them with a boat oar for two hours.
But alas! That was the young naive Trevor.
Two and a half years later my time has improved to 1:40 without post race soreness!
I attribute all my improvement to Angie’s coaching. I know it works and maybe if I wasn’t such a lazy runner I would follow her advice more completely.
If your goal is to run a faster half marathon next year (2013) I want to give you Angie’s 10 point plan for making it happen.
