    Thanks fellow donuts!!! I was passed and then smoked by a 70+ year old. I was lovin' it. The guy had some great mojo, we talked for a bit afterward.

     

    Indi - bring the good news brother!

        Nice Job Roll!

         

        Akalei- It is such a good book! I'm definitely waiting for that run review on the Kinvaras!

         

        Indiana- RACE RESULTS NEEDED!!!

         

        Me- Delayed my long run one more day to kick the cough, but ran my 10k today.  51:31.  PR technically, but um...I ran the 10k split in my half marathon in 49, so I am not impressed with this result.  A bunch of walkers ran in front of me...awesome.  I also got elbowed in the stomach by some psycho running super slow in the 7:30 corral...good times.   Going to the car show tonight...with a 19 year old who is somewhat loud.

          First off....Congaratulations Roll!!!!  You da MAN!  I am very happy for you!

           

          Before I download my garmin information to show what we will call a poorly executed race run by a person who should have deferred his entry, I want all of you to know that I am still VERY happy with my time.  I can honestly say that through all of the poor decisions I have made over the last 5 or 6 weeks,  I am still proud of myself for another marathon finish and a new PR of 3:42:21 (official).

           

          Now that you know that I have finished and what my time is, I will upload my data and tell you everything that went wrong.

            Congrats on the PR Indy!  I am sorry your race did not go as well as you hoped, but impressed with your attitude about it!  Maybe we can all learn something...lord knows I am still quite ignorant when it comes to running!!

                Roll - congratulations !! so what did your splits look like? it's been a while since I've done a 5K - always interested in if you did a warm up and how this affects pace in a short race

                  Thanks guys!

                  I am too tired to pound out a RR at the moment, but I will put it down to the biggest factors:

                   

                  1. Missed too many quality runs at the peak of my training due to injury

                   

                  2. Ran other runs during training despite injury

                   

                  3. After a loss of confidence and (in my thinking) fitness, I ran the race even though I constantly told myself to defer my entry

                   

                  4. Ignored my own advice of pulling my goal pace down to 8:20

                   

                  things went awry during mile 22.  Breathing and HR were good to go best I could tell but the wind and hills and my left leg from the hip down to my ankle made some decisions that my mental game could not overcome.  I basically ran/walked my way to a 4:39 PR.  Funny thing though, I met a woman and guy during the race that were also looking to finish at 3:35ish.  All three of us finishsed within a minute of each other.

                  Oh yeah, I would not rec this race to anyone.  Less than 20 people cheering outside of the water stops.  I like a small race, but this was the extreme.

                    Sounds like a rough race. Congrats on managing to come out of it with a PR anyway!  I hope you do write a RR later.

                    Thanks guys!

                      Sounds like a tough course Indy!  I bet you will kick butt at Monumental....flat, flat, flat!

                        Nice PR Indi!!! That's something to be proud of. I hope to run a full that fast sometime. Overcoming struggles like that is always mental ammo for future races. Have a donut.

                          DTF - splits were embarrassing. Didn't manage my pace well because I got caught up in the moment during the first 1/2 mile running with the young bucks, I looked down and was running a 5:35 pace. Backed off to a mid 6 min pace. Struggled in the second half of the second mile and beginning of the third mile. Then told myself to "suck it up butter cup". About that time a senior citizen made me look like I was running backward.

                           

                          Mile one : 6:32

                          Mile two : 7:12

                          Mile three : 7:17

                          the last .1 : sprint (ish)

                              Hi, guys.  Internet was out most of the day, bah, but here I am!  15 miles done this morning in gorgeous weather but with a headwind all the way. Nice run.


                              Rollcast, woot!  That is an awesome result.

                               

                              AmiK, hope you're feeling better.

                               

                              Great runs, all.
