Pre-race routine:

Woke up at 5am. Had two cups of coffee and oatmeal with honey and cinnamon. Left the house at 6:20 and walk to Corral B. Saw Will and decided to start out of Corral D with him and then saw my other friends as well.
Event warmup:

  • 1h 59m 11s
  • 13.1 miles
  • 09m 06s  min/mile

Will and I started together. Next time we are starting in a Corral that goes out first. I had to leave Will to go to the port o can right in the beginning but was able to catch up to him around mile 7 or 8. Ran together a little towards the finish. I ran this one faster than I ever have a half. Felt the hurt but it felt good!
What would you do differently?:

Longer training plan.
Post race
Warm down:

Walked with Will through GRB to get our goods and then head to meet our friends. El Big Bad for brunch.

Event comments:

Always a fun 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.
