Decker Challenge 09/12
bob e v 2013 goals: keep on running! Is there anything more than that?
Finish halves, 3M Half 1/13 and probably Decker Challenge in DecHistory: blessed heart attack 3/15/2008; c25k july 2008 first 5k 10/26/2008 on 62nd birthday.
PBs since age 60: 5k- 24:36, 10k - 47:17. Half Marathon- 1:42:41.
10 miles (unofficial) 1:16:44.
Tomorrow is the big day, Cowtown Half marathon. Am excited and obsessed with going over race strategy, parking strategy, and everything race related. Goal is to finish easy with a pb. Stretch goal is sub 2:45. I'm hoping to keep the 2:40 pace group in site. This will be first continuous running (except for water stops) attempt.. Previous 2 halves have been run 1 min, walk 1 min
Good luck tomorrow!
I've been doing the same thing for my HM this Saturday, going over all my strategies in my head. I'm so excited I think I'm going to explode.
Ashley Goals: 1)Get my IT Band to cooperate! 2) Run lots of trails.
Hey gang ... back in the HMT mix since the Army invasion seems to be over and my main 2010 goal is sub 1:40 figured this is the place to be, which so far training is not going so well so well, but 10 more shopping months left in 2010!
Bonus to come on back the day before my boy Bobev is racing ... good luck old timer ... you will do great.
Overall training has really sucked last 2 months for a variety of reasons ... err excuses. But hopefully can pull out a lame ass PR on guts in 8 days at 1st race of year on a 15k course that was my softest of PRs from last March. should be hamering < 1:14 but will be exstatic with anything less than 1:21! Should either give me hope or a big ass wake up call to get me going for May 16th Half Marathon goal race at Clev Marathon.
Welcome back Buckeye - you'll be back at it in no time. Winter training sucks. Too dark, too many treadmills!
This week has been a real slog just to get the miles in for me and they've mainly been junk miles, nothing to write home (or here) about.
Good luck to everyone racing this weekend.
Bob & Ashley - looking forward to your race reports letting us know how you got on.
Bob - It's fine weather for a run in the DeeEffDubbya Metromess today. I was out early this morning and it was a little cold but it's clear, no wind to speak of and warming up just a little right now. Go for it
2013 Goals1) Break 1:50 in a HM (PR 1:52:19)2) Break 4:00 in a Marathon (PR 4:20:39)
