Comments:

I was just trying out my Ironman pace. I was looking for 9.0 min/mile and set my Garmin virtual partner to this pace and ran at this pace. I finished exactly where I wanted to. It is much slower than I normally run. My usual 1/2 marathon time is around 1:35 so this was very easy pace for me. Barely broke a sweat and breathing was easy.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing.

Warm down:

Rode my bike home (4.0 miles).

Event comments:

Well run race. Plenty of volunteers and water/gatorade stations. It is a Police 1/2 marathon so it was well manned and all intersections were controlled. Nice medal and nice post race breakfast.

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.
