PH, I asked on another thread but you might not have seen it, hows your spuds going?
PBs since age 60: 5k- 24:36, 10k - 47:17. Half Marathon- 1:42:41.
10 miles (unofficial) 1:16:44.
Mr PH, 1:37:49????
We need details!
I must have missed that. We had a spell of warm weather and the plants just started popping out of the ground this past week. I can usually start harvesting the early varieties around late June.
Oh, and 1:37:49 by my watch this morning .... 2 minute PR. More later.
I've got the Santa Ynez half this weekend, May 9th. Lovely course, wine festival at the end. All I've gotta do is not die and I'm golden. Time goal? What's a time goal?
What's the Santa Ynez? I'm still planning at some point to come out to CA and run a HM for one of the wine festivals. Originally, it was what got me interested in doing a HM, but I dropped the idea for awhile as the NAPA race in July that I was loooking at didn't really take me through the wine valleys. I hear there is one in the fall, that I need to look at, but probably not until 2010 as I pretty much have my 5 weeks of vacation spoken for for the year.
By the way, how did your HM go, I looked but it's not posted in your log yet.
1:37 and change, very nice job. Did you run an even pace or vary it.
Right now, I'm planning on a 1:43:00 / 7:52 pace. I think I've got more than that in me, but it'll depend on how smart of a race I run and weather conditions. Last year was a hot and humid day and drained a lot of people.
I plant mine late and if they come up cover with soil as we still get the chance of frosts until the end of May.
