Time Trial for a Half

What is a good 'time trial' for a half marathon - in order to figure out proper training paces.
If you don't want to spend the $$ to do a 5k/10k race, is there a specific workout that you could use to decide your paces training forward?

Re: Barrie Half Marathon 14 Aug 2011

My son and I volunteered and my DH ran the relay. I can't say enough about how smoothly everything ran. (pun intended) The organizers/volunteers/BarrieRoadRunners/Honda - everyone really outdid themselves. Kudos to you all! I heard a rumour about possibly moving the date to April next year - I'm pla...

Re: Injured List

Well, I'm still on the Injured List... for now. I walked for an hour this morning and everything feels okay, so that's gotta be a good sign? We'll see how the ankle feels tomorrow.

How is everyone else doing?

Re: Double-Double-Down: Poutine

Turned "veggie" many years ago, but I grew up eating Poutine and the best place in my opinion would be any "casse-croute" in rural Quebec. Nothing beats the "crottes" (curds) from Fromage Princesse. Ohhh, and for that matter, if you're wanting something different: a &qu...

Re: Getaway Sunday

One week of no running so far, pretty sure it's another stress fracture, sooooooo, it's at least another five weeks of no running in my immediate future. Will make a Dr appt and see if I can get an MRI, by the time I get in it'll hopefully show that it's healing. Not much else to do but stay off it....
