Half-marathon Training Update

The clock is ticking and my muscles are burning, but, seven days before my first half-marathon, I am happy to report that my training appears to be back on track. I have managed my first 12+ mile run in under a 10 minute per mile pace and on the rolling hills of the Palos Verdes Peninsula. If I don't do something stupid during the week ahead, I figure I should be able to complete next week's race averaging a respectable 9 minutes per mile. The entire course appears to be flat, near sea level. The only thing I am really concerned about at this point is the weather since we'll be in San Diego. I'm crossing my fingers because the current forecast suggests temperatures will be comfortable...within the 60's.
