Meh. 8 Weeks after IM and I really wasn't into this race but DH was running the marathon so I figured I'd give it a go and see if I could even still run 13.1 miles. My goal was to keep the pace just below 10mm - which I did until the end when I fell off. OOPS Oh well, on to IM training for 2016!!
What would you do differently?:

I really didn't train much so definitely that.

Warm down:

We had a wedding to get to so we just BLEW out of town ASAP.

Event comments:

Another race by HMF. The only negative things I heard were about the pace groups. Apparently a lot of them were very off the mark. No issues here though.

Nicely done, Randee! I've heard lots of poor comments about pacers in the blogosphere lately. I guess they aren't having a good season. Glad that you were pacing your own race! :-)

Training for a specific running event is not as easy as it might seem. Here are some tips and a weekly plan to avoid overtraining and to improve your performance.

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.
