It's a minute or two harder going counter clockwise - and a bit harder overall (I should be 1:25 for a half) but it felt good and I wasn't crushed the next day

What limited your ability to perform faster:

No taper, hills, etc.


Event comments:

I have run this race every year since getting off the couch. 8 years to go from 1:55 to 1:28 - still room to go!

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.
