13.1 mi Good attendance for a first year event, I tried to put out of my head the thoughts of the full marathon I did just 6 days ago. I found Sal & Suzanne at the start, looks as if 500people showed up, with the majority of them doing the half vs the 5k. The … Continue reading Sunshine State Half marathon
4 mi. I ran none of the intervals fast, I was way behind most of the crew I'm usually with, but it's worth it to show up and talk about the race with others who did it and those that wanted to but were out of town or occupied. Paul led a mixture of short … Continue reading All the chatter is worth it
5 mi. Only 4 laps on the hill with a mile of slow warmup. I know the value of loosening and testing legs after the races, so I showed for the bridge crawl today. I registered for next year's 2013 A1A race already, too!
26.37 mi. Keep thinking all week that something special will happen weather-wise, even though all reports on every website say TOO WARM TO DO WELL! They stated 860+ full marathoners and 4500 total racers, this event is growing deservedly so. I left home at 3:45am with Walter, drove to the usual $5 parking lot East of … Continue reading A1A Marathon 2012
4 mi. I skipped on the cooldown mile, and interrupted the first 1000m interval with 150 to go for a bathroom visit. Good mix of thinsg to do, none at a pace any faster than I'll run Sunday - 7:30 or slower. I like that so many people are coming to the A1A Marathon, a … Continue reading Good day for endurance folk
7.5 mi Half a cooldown run with Walter made an ordinarily 8 mile run 7.5. My footbed on the left shoe was a bit annoyed with the hills in the Gel Kayanos, not sure why, I've used them before and no ill effects came about as of Saturday's 10 miler. This run was good, breezy … Continue reading BBR (Bridge before race)
18mi. The final long run on near mileage expired shoes, I started with Steve, Lilia, Chiara and Walter at 5am. A bathroom break in the sea oats bushes outside McDonalds kept me from the group until I met them at the turnaround by PGA Blvd. Once at the store, I took plenty of Accelerade and … Continue reading 18 mi. of mixed intervals
7 mi. I skipped the cool down laps, my newer Aasics Gel Kayanos felt somewhat tight on my left forefoot. Like the tingling feeling I got on that foot for the 50 miler. I ran with Walter, good average speed, nice breeze and a quick over all finish time. Paul was running, Kyle Smith, Randi, … Continue reading Good effort = more gas in the tank.
16 mi I forgot to write a post on this long run in the downtown area. Suzanne and Adrienne met Walter and I at 7am for the start at the Clematis Street fountains. We ran the PB Marathon route to Lake Worth Bridge park, circled the park perimeter like Lake Worth Tri 3 mile course, … Continue reading Downtown long run
4mi. I had to scoot out early before cooldown to get John off to school in time. The intervals for the 17 ppl that showed up were: 1 mi warmup 200m w/100m recovery 200m w/100m recovery 800m w/200m recovery 100m w/100m recovery 100m w/100m recovery 1000m w/200 recovery 400m w/100m recovery @75% 400m w/100m recovery … Continue reading Intervals for distance
