New PR for half-marathon


Saturday, March 02, 2013

My official time was 2:37:32, almost 10 minutes faster than my fastest time from 2 years ago. Given my abbreviated preparation for this race I'm really pleased with the results.
The weather was fairly nice, no rain, temperature in the upper 40's. I maintained a 12 minute/mile pace through the whole race and tried to speed up a little at the end.
My average pulse was 146, maximum pulse was 156. I walked briefly at the water stations. After the race my muscles felt tired but nothing hurt. Pulse was down to about 85 within 30 minutes.

    Thanks everyone for your nice comments. I suspect that going off dairy really made a lot of difference. More on that in the next few days as I'm going through another round of dairy trials.

    emoticon emoticon how was the prep for it, you said you would load up on carbs, I think, good carbs of course, did that help? Or will you still work it out on that? Great going, I can't even think of running right now, bad knees and too heavy but in due time, who knows ?
