Back from running (walking, jogging, too) and did it in 2:49 hrs. This by itself is not a good number, and it is 4 minutes more than my targeted time of 2:45. However it was still better than my last year’s timing of 2:57!
This post is to say something else though! Last year (2010) I had prepared better – and that perhaps made my complacent. I was sure I would complete in under 3 hours….and I relaxed (or as all my kids say I chilled!).
This year I really freaked out with a vacation in the last week of Dec (when I wore the shoes, but did no running)…and was generally badly prepared. This meant I was scared and ran better.
IT IS ALL IN THE MIND…there could not have been a better lesson. So one year later, with lesser preparation, just the mind pushed me to the finish with timing better than last years!
SO NEXT YEAR IT IS THE FULL MARATHON…in say 6 hours…what say?
If I do not do it before I turn 50, I never will…so 2012…here I come for the FULL MARATHON…maybe I will walk it..but its on!
will post the pics on fb…not sure how to post it here..or if i can figure it out, will post it here…
