Hapalua Half Marathon Training Week 12

I’ll be writing a quick recap of The Hapalua in a little bit – at the moment I have come down with a cold, and am feeling sorry for myself.  I really just wanted to put this up.  I’ll probably need to update it too, to add in my splits for the Hapalua.  I’m pretty disappointed with how I ran.  Well, maybe I’m more disappointed with how I trained – I was definitely under trained, and really need to focus on completing long runs.

Overview:  I’m happy I completed the race.  Definitely could have been better – I’m happy I finished it.
I wanted to run more during the week, but didn’t because I knew I had the Half Marathon at the end, and didn’t want to bump up my mileage too much.  I’ll be excited to start training for a 12km race!

Total weekly mileage: 24.1
