Half Marathon Training recap

The race is this Sunday morning at 7:15 (way too early). I've been running pretty regularly for a few months now. Other than yesterday, it usually doesn't hurt. I did a workout of 10 miles once on a treadmill. I did 8 2/3 miles outside once, that was hard, and a bunch of workouts of 5 to 7 miles, usually once or twice a week. Yes I under-trained but my knees, etc. can't take a regular schedule and my goal is to run the whole way. I've been training at a pace under 8 minutes, but don't plan on doing that for 13 miles. 9 or so is the plan and then just like my workouts I'll play it by ear. After the race I plan to stay in shape and run a few 5 K's and then take that training into the winter for Master the Met next year.
