Super happy with this race.

3rd was about 40 seconds in front but 5th and 6th were directly behind me. (I passed them in the final mile as I kicked) As it turned out, it was a drag race to the finish. Dang this is a tough age group wink emoticon

I ended up with a 21 second negative split and am very pleased with my pacing. My HR was a bit elevated but with a 10 kt wind, that is to be expected.

This was my 3rd sub-90 half marathon and my best showing at this race. (I was 39th OA, 5th AG last year)
Next up, Carlsbad Marathon in January

Congrats on the great time. I used to live in Coronado when I was stationed in SD with the Navy, but they didn't have this race back then. I did a lot of training up and down the Strand and it is a great flat course. May have to come back for it next year. Good luck in January!

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.
