Training for the half marathon is going well despite having a touch of a cold. I ran about five miles tonight and plan on another five Thursday and ten or so on the weekend and then start to taper to race day on the 25th of April. My hamstring problem has subsided and the plantar fasciitis is much better. I am even tempted to train a little harder and stray from the plan but I think it is wise to stay the course, I do not want to overdo it at this point and not be able to complete the race. I am at 75 push ups and 88 sit ups and I am continuing my non running day stretching.
