I'm doing the Hal Higdon novice training plan for half marathons in preparation for this May's Flying Pig in Cincinnati.

Today, I ran 6 miles for the first time.


For the very first time? Hal Higdon has a lot to answer for.

Maybe I'm too conservative or too much of a plodder but, IIRC, I fancy I ran my first bone fide half marathon (race) close to 20 years after my gym teacher decided that I was a "distance" runner. FWIW, This was back in the day when we all ran to school uphill BOTH way, into the wind, through waist deep snow, satchels on our back and no shoes (those of us who were really poor had no feet.....we had to roll ;) ) With all that conditioning etc. I gifted myself with an ischaemic colitis.

I'm not suggesting you avoid disappointment by aiming too low but, still.....what do you manage to hack on your 10K or 10 mile-ers(races and not "runs", mind)
