Looking to get that 11 in today. I'm not very inspired though... Gettin kinda burned outish
Rock'n'Roll half marathon this morning. Kicked off @ 6:30am. Overcast, a bit windy and ~65F. The wind was on/off annoying especially in the last couple of miles as the course went up some off ramps into the wind. Had to really fight it. There was a bit of rain late in the race but the nasty dark clouds blew by. My stomach was not happy early on but by mile 8 I switched gears and dropped the folks around me and started chasing people down. Finished strong and completely spent.
Anyway, all told I pulled off a PR. I'd predicted 1:27 when I signed up and have 1:26:52 on my watch, so a minute faster than my last HM. Maybe a fraction faster with the chip? In fact I was a bit faster at 10M than my best 10 mile race this year. The splits are as follows:
BBS -- Get your butt out there. Don't listen to RA.
akern -- Great job.
RA -- Awesome, my man! You now own the record between us. My PR is 1:27:03. Curses!
Haven't been posting much these days. Hate it when I'm not running high mileage. I did, however, complete my first oly tri yesterday. Race report will be posted tomorrow.
Flyby. Finally back home after being gone for over a week. Logged my very first DNS this morning. Nasty, nasty upset stomach overnight left me totally drained and lightheaded this morning. Since this was a throw away race and I'm racing a Half Iron next weekend, decided to just bag it. Bummed about it though.
Well, officially it's 1:26:49 so that's 3 more seconds to your misery. ;) Congrats on the triathlon.
BBS - hope you got out there and did it
akern - nice 4
RA - wow, taking down 1:27, I'd say your getting this HM thing down. Congrats!
Chances - nice of you to drop in ;) Looking forward to hearing about the tri
4boys - sorry about the dns, but as you say it was a throwaway. Get yourself rested and psyched for next weekend
Rest day for me after the long run yesterday.
Nice job on all the racing and training and such. I still have a sore back which is leaving me feeling drained. I guess I am going to get the chiropractor to help out the sore back tomorrow.
Have a great evening everyone.
Hey guys. Gotta get back in the posting routine. Did workouts Saturday and Sunday. One more week in the books.
