KLIM 2007 (Half Marathon) Race Report

This is not a race

Yup, you read that right. I didn't approach this as a race but merely a stepping stone towards my full rehabilitation as a marathoner. This morning's run was to allow me to gauge if my training has been in the right direction and also as a proving ground.

 

Having laid out my gear, including breakfast the night before, I was out the door pretty quickly. Breakfast was a puff pastry with half a cup of hot Milo. In the 3 Nike bottles were some concoction (nothing illegal, I assure you) in varying degrees of dilution. I don't concoct things on race day so this confirms that the morning run was part of my training for the big one. I also opted not to wear the Forsters after testing it out on a tempo run yesterday. I felt that my condition had not reached the level where I can do away with added cushioning and support. I carried a pack of GU gel and a pack of Agel.

  • Dr:As usual, an enjoyable race report to read.

    You ran a good race (I called it that) with nearly identical pacing for the two halves. I think that is the best strategy to a run sub-2 hr time for a half marathon.

    Except for one race,I ran my sub 2-hrs HM time with even pacing throughout the entire distance.
