Good run. Since that was my first half marathon besides half marathons during triathlon, I was sure how to pace myself. I was aiming at 4:10 pace and that's what I got. There was a moment of some slowdown in pace, party due to the fact that i was taking it easy to attack last 3 km and party because i dropped 2 guys that were right behind me and no one was ahead of me.
Good race.
What would you do differently?:

Train more run:) There is always something that I could improve. I'm pretty happy with race results, but I think I can run faster in the future.

Not enough training for this distance

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 ran the Boston Marathon under nine minute miles, can I run eight minute miles for my half Ironman training runs? Or should I go slower?

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.
