*SF2HM = San Francisco 2nd Half Marathon
Tues: Easy 3 miles, walked for the remainder.
Stats: 3.3 miles + 30 min stretching/rolling
Wed: 30 min stretching/rolling
Thurs: Similar to Tuesday, except that I added strides in mile 2.
Stats: 3.2 miles + 30 min stretching/rolling
Fri: Rest. Went to the Race Expo.
Sat: 2 mile shake-out run + 30 min stretching/rolling
Sun: Race day! Recap coming soon, but here are the quick take-home messages:
1. I didn’t get my sub-2. Wah-wah. My official time: 2:01:05.
2. I ran a negative split, but mostly because I went out way too conservatively in the first 4 miles. But, hey, at least I didn’t blow up. *small victories*
3. I ran the same pace today as I did for Healdsburg, where I PR’d with 2:00:37. The main difference? I ran a slightly longer race today… which, if I had to guess, would mostly be due to the weaving I had to do to get around the crowds.
Stats: 13.2 miles @ 9:11/mile, ~500′ elevation gain
WEEKLY TOTAL: 21.7 miles + ~1.5 hours stretching.
How I felt about it: I’m wondering if I tapered too much, because my legs did not have any spring in them this morning. I probably should have kept some intensity in my runs. Oh well. B.
