Cluster-pine trees

During the hot summer we run in this beautiful place where the path crosses a cluster-pine trees forest and wild pigs live inside a big enclosure. You can see it in the pictures posted.

Next week I will likely began to follow a half-marathon training schedule for intermediate runners. It.s a 12-week half-marathon training program which provides 6 tempo run trainings. Tempo runs help you develop your anaerobic threshold, which is critical for faster racing.
For a 40-minute tempo run, for example, start your run with 5 to 10 minutes of easy running, then continue with 15 to 20 minutes of running at about a 10K pace. Finish with 5 to 10 minutes of cooling down. If you're not sure what your 10K pace is, run at a pace that feels "comfortably hard".

Very interesting program. What's your goal: a sub 95 minutes?

Have you started your half marathon training program? I wonder what your running trails look like this time of year! Do your trees turn color?
