Salt Lake City Half Marathon - Run

View Member's Race Log View other race reports
Salt Lake City, Utah
United States
Salt Lake City Marathon
75F / 24C
Total Time = 2h 00m 38s
Overall Rank = 870/2928
Age Group = 40-44
Age Group Rank = 353/1782
Pre-race routine:

Got up early to eat--the usual: banana and half bagel with peanut butter. Rolled my IT band, stretched, that was about it.
Event warmup:

Some stretching, two trips to porta potty :-)
  • 2h 00m 38s
  • 13.1 miles
  • 09m 13s  min/mile

This is the first time I ran keeping an eye on my heart rate. I stayed in the upper Z2 for most of the race, occasionally creeping up into Z3. I felt like I ran well, I was gassed at the end, knew I had pushed hard.
What would you do differently?:

Maybe stayed in lower Z2 a bit longer to see if I had any more left to push at the end
Post race
Warm down:

Walked to hotel, jumped in car and drove the 90 minutes home to watch my daughter's fastpitch softball games (they won both!)

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Genetics :)

Event comments:

Great new course, would definitely do it again!

Congrats!  That sets you up quite nicely for SG!  Hope the recovery (and taper) treats you well

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 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

I am running Boston in April and Ironman Lake Placid is in July. I have been told that it is ambitious to think about doing an IM so close to a marathon due to the recovery time. Any suggestions?

The first time I ventured into the deep murky green lake and could not see the bottom my muscles tensed and my imagined fears surfaced. What exactly lies beneath?
