Not a bad training time...

I've been running this half marathon course (13.1 miles) on Sundays--if nothing else is going on and I have been trying to improve.

Today I did it in 1:48:42 for a 8:18/mile pace and this is a good 2 minutes faster than last time and I am happy with it in a way. But something irks. In the Boston Marathon I ran the first half in 1:39:15 and I still had another half to go, which I ran in about 1:49. Maybe I should be pushing myself harder or something.

I am pretty darn tired though and worked-up a good sweat along the way. So there is that. Update: I ran this back in May in 1:47:24, it was probably cooler then though.
