I was planning to run this as a Long Run Oops. Martian HM RR. (Read 89 times)

never run


    Let's see since I liked the t-shirt, I decided earlier this week to run the Martian HM in Dearborn this morning in place of my LR.  I didn't really push the pace especially the 2nd half but I didn't run it at long run pace either.  results 1:41:51.  I was trying to keep it at feeling no harder than say a MP effort run which is why the 2nd half was a lot slower and I walked a couple of aide stations.  It was great running weather except for the last say 30 minute or so when it started to snain (snow/rain).

      Great job notwithstanding, speedy.  How did the MP effort feel like?

        Basically somewhere just short of a tempo, and I backed off when it started feeling hard.  So I ran "strong" but not hard.

          Good workout overall, sounds like.

            Congrats on completing another HM. I need to arrange a visit with my dad next year so I can run this one and meet a few of you.

              Another great race report this weekend, I think this is going to be a common theme here.  1:41:51 great time for a Half Marathon, outstanding.

                Great job!

                  Well done!

                  I probably saw you there, but did not know it, you finished about 6 minutes ahead of me. But I doubt you stuck around for too long afterwards in that mess. I guess there are more MI runners on this forum than I realized.

                   

                  And go ahead and gloat about the cool shirts. The women's were bright Martian green, the men's were a humble earthling white.

                  Go figure

                    Sounds like a fun way to do a training run. Very nice effort, and smart too.

                        I actually entertained the idea of running the first few miles of this with you but shit, not at those speeds - lmao!

                         

                        You are really good at this!

                         

                        So what exactly is your goal race or are you just training?
