Last night I set a new PB in the half marathon = 71'54 from 74'50. My last key workouts were: 90min long run (being 25km) at 14sec/km slower than yesterday's race pace (2 weeks ago). And then 5x10min (2' rest) at HM goal race pace (4 weeks ago). Aside from that, I fitted in 5k-1500m race pace or faster speed workouts for support, long runs up to 90min, moderate distance tempos (10-12k) at or faster than HM pace (more so during my earlier training build-up). My mileage was 70-90km, which is my sweetspot at the momentum. I run 2 sessions/workouts a week plus a moderate effort long run most weeks, and I take my easy runs pretty relaxed. That is of course what works for me right now...
If you'd like to see how things turned out in the race, feel free to check out the YouTube video I made:

fantastic job...:) I used to run 1:12 (half) and now I am 68 and have been using a weekly half-marathon in my goal quest. I have done 41 half-marathons, every week except two. Coming down from 13:50min/mile pace to now 9:58. I have added a tuesday run of miles repeats embedded in 2hrs 30. This is genius for me and I have done it 6 weeks and feel the strength growing. I am shooting for a 2:54 marathon when I turn 70. You training is awesome!!!!!!
