Pre-race routine:

Nike thermal and fleece overskirt. Perfect.

Very strong last 3 miles. My only goal was to finish the race and not take it hard. Since I had plenty left over at the end I just went all out. I'l check my Garmin results on Monday at work, since that's where the dongle is.
What would you do differently?:

Take the training a little more serious.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Poor training.

Event comments:

Ton of people along the course cheering, plenty of water stations and lots of vendors. The medal is the best so far and it lights up like a Christmas ornament.

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.
