It was a good race but you really have to have practiced your downhill running. It can take a toll on you otherwise.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

I developed a pretty bad blister that covered my right heel by about mile 7. It was painful but I think I was able to run through it. There really wasn't anything else I could do it was too deep.

Event comments:

Good first year race. The thing that made it a bit better than average is the course. It's scenic and unusual to have a race that's almost all downhill like this one.

Overall: 27/408
Performance: Good
Course: There was about 4000 feet of elevation loss over the course. It was pretty steep in some places but never painfully steep. Once you leave the canyon at about mile 9 the run becomes tougher. A few flatter sections that feel hard after 9 miles of hammering downhill and there is one short but steep climb around mile 10.5 or 11.
Keeping cool Good Drinking Just right

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

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.

I just had a couple of problems, I could count the number of triathlons I had contested at zero. Secondly, I could count on one hand the number of times I had been swimming in the last 17 years.

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.
