Easy running until Valentine's Day

I've run twice since the 3M half marathon last Sunday: 7 miles Wednesday and 8 miles Thursday. Both times around Austin's Town Lake, and both times I stayed right around 8:00 min/mile pace. No need in getting crazy because I've got another half marathon coming up on February 14, the Austin Half Marathon, which will be on a much more challenging course.
Tomorrow (Saturday morning) a group of us are running the Austin Half marathon course. I like having an idea of all the ins and outs of a course before I run it, so I am definitely looking forward to that run.
Health-wise, I'd say I'm about 90 percent. I twisted my knee a week before 3M and it is still a little crazy, especially when I run downhill. Yet it held up at 3M, which was mostly a downhill course.
I don't really have a goal for this next half marathon. I need 1:30 to qualify for the New York Marathon, though I don't think I will try for a 1:30 just yet, unless, of course, I'm at Mile 10 and things are going beyond my wildest dreams, then I'd go for it.
Instead, I think I'll try to run somewhere around 1:33 or better, then maybe run a half marathon in the late spring and try to nail New York then.

When I get back to Texas... which will be sooner than I think... I'm going to make it a goal to run the 3M Half Marathon in Austin.

Enjoy your easy days on the run!

It's been a BIG HIT with marathon runners--thought I'd share.

Id love to get your thoughts!
