Right around mile 12 got a sharp pain in my right Achilles tendon and could hardly put any weight on it. It cost me a sub 2
What would you do differently?:

Hope for no pain

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Achilles tendon

Event comments:

Very good first half. No pace groups. I managed to hang in with 2 females most of the race and that helped the time go by quick. I was at 1:50 when Achilles tendon started acting up. If not for that think The sub 2 would of been in the bag.

Congrats Mike.  You are really close to hitting your goal.   I will guess that you either undertrained or overtrained if you ended up with the achilles problem, but cannot tell from your logs.

Good job on the race, sorry to hear about missing your goal due to the Achilles tendon pain ...careful there, injury there can be a season stopper.

Heard that the Huntsville Track Club puts on a good show. Was the event well organized with adequate race course support?

My question is am I playing with fire entering the half marathon this close to my primary goal for this season which is the HIM?

I just ran the Boston Marathon under nine minute miles, can I run eight minute miles for my half Ironman training runs? Or should I go slower?

I just started doing tris this summer and I have two under my belt, both sprints. Is it reasonable to build up for a Oly in early ‘09, with a HIM in Oct of ‘09

Steady is our walk. Ignoring the pain that is radiating from my feet, I continue to place one foot in front of the other. Again I wonder, “Why am I doing this?”

Having three seasons under my belt I thought I knew what I was doing. That all changed with a few new challenges and a bunch of new friends.

This program should be used for an athlete whose goal is to run a marathon in the 1:30-2:30 range and has a good running base in the past 8-12 weeks.

I will assume you have not run consistently more than 6 miles and have never completed a half-marathon. I believe running your first half-marathon is a big task which requires dedication and work.

My training was taking off. I had never felt stronger. I was making bigger strides than I ever had. I was stronger and faster than I had imagined myself ever being.
