Nice easy run. My coach had me run the first 8 miles at 8:00/mile. I am running the Fargo full marathon in 6 days so this was just a training run. Keeping it nice and easy to ease recovery and not take too much from the tank for next week.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing.
Post race
Warm down:

None, Got on my bike and rode home.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

My coach setting the pace and not allowing me to run what I can run.

Event comments:

The on course aid station were good. Only water and Gatorade available, no gels or any other items. Very disappointed in the post race food. There was banana's, oranges, bagels, cookies and pancakes, and the usual drinks.

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

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.
