My ultimate goal would be sub-1:25:00. Things would have to go perfect for that due a hilly course and I haven’t really tapered this week. Regardless I am resolved to go sub 1:28:00, no excuses.

I’ll do ~2 miles for a warm up with light stretching and a few strides.

Husker,

Given that you just ran 17:15, I think you are VASTLY underestimating your half marathon potential. I’m probably in about 18:15 shape and I ran just under 1:25 two weeks ago. Also, the difference between 1:25 and 1:28 is huge. Someone in 17:15 shape should be able to “jog” a 1:28.

Can’t wait to hear how it goes. I’d bet that you’re closer to 1:22, than to 1:28.
