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.
