Pre-race routine:

Drove out to the outer banks on Friday evening. Did a short run on Saturday. The morning of the race I had a chocolate shakeology and got a ride to race about 15 minutes ahead of time
Event warmup:

Light stretching.
  • 1h 50m 20s
  • 13.1 miles
  • 08m 25s  min/mile

Point to point race. First HM. Kept it slow and in control from the gun. Really focused on not going too fast. Started to pick up the pace at 4 and then again at 7 miles. Started pushing the last 3.1 miles. Although I ran the tangents I measured the course at 13.2 and my wife at 13.3.
What would you do differently?:

Could have pushed a little harder

Walked around the post race activities

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.
