9/14/2009 - 9/20/2009: 57.8 km 4:45:50
Meet Strider - my new running buddy. We brought him home from the breeder on Sunday. He is a 14 week old Vizsla - More pictures here - we just love him
Well it sure wasn't the highest week, but it was a great week. Recovered from pacing in Haliburton and sleeping in the car and then built (a little speed) and tapered for the Army Half. I had no expectations for the race - just hoping to run strong - 1:40 was a goal time, which I surpassed - running a 1:35:42, my 3rd fastest half.
1st 10km - 45:09
2nd 10km - 44:54 (slight -'ve split)
Last km in 4:23
and the last 350m (Garmin had it at 21.35 total) was a 3:48/km pace
I really have found those running drills paying off. Didn't feel as strong, but did feel that my stride was more efficient, which I think payed big in this race.
Kimberley crushed her NCM Half time - breaking the 1:43 barrier with a 1:42:58 - super job my love. Her race report.
Not too sure what will happen this week with Puppy - sleep will be a luxury, but all worth it.
