We missed good weather by 1 day. A cool front is blowing in this afternoon and will drop the temperature about 30 degrees. It was a hot and muggy 71 degrees/67 dewpoint and a 10-15 mph wind to start and 78 degrees/67 dewpoint and a strong 10-15 mph head wind at the end of the race.&nbsp;</p> <p>My original hope was to run a 1:34 but after mile 3 I knew that wasn&#39;t going to happen. I started back in the pace a ways as I always like to do and kept mile 1 fairly easy as planned and indicated by my HR. But into mile 2 I has already started to sweat profusely and pretty much know my 1:34 was going to be out of the question. Miles 3,4,5 all came in at exactly 7:36 with me trying just to keep a consistant pace. I was suprised they were all the same as this is not a flat course. At mile 6 I walked a little talking to another runner and assessing what my goal from this point on should be. I decided, at this point, that I had better really listen to my body and not do anything stupid and bonk. From my HR I knew I was running on the edge. Back to 7:35 for mile 7, 7:36 mile 8, 7:39 mile 9 and then the dreaded mile climb on mile 10 at 8:17. Again back to 7:36 on mile 11 and some more uphill on mile 12 and a 7:45. Last year I was increasing my pace nicely after 10 but I just couldn&#39;t do it this year. Mile 13 is mostly a gradual down hill and I hit that at 7:04 but was dissipointed I couldn&#39;t break into 6 at this point. Lots of runners were overheating, I could see that coming with many that I passed. I would talk to them for a bit and tell them they were doing great but as usual they would try to hang with me for a while and I would hear them begin to labor and I knew at that point they were going to bonk. (I talked to three of them after the race and confirmed my belief.)&nbsp; I wish I could calculate the equlivant effort to a better weather condition because I really thought 1:33 - 1:34 was not out of the question.&nbsp;</p> <p>I ended up 10th overall, the best I&#39;ve ever done in this race of about 1,000-1,200 but didn&#39;t feel like I did that great. 1st in my age division. I talked to the old guy that won 2nd in my age division and I think he though he had me beat but he didn&#39;t realise I has started in the middle of the pack and came and caught him! :-)</p> <p>Hopefully this will be a springboard to good marathon training in the next few weeks but it really didn&#39;t build my confidence. This was my 3rd slowest Half Marathon.</p> <table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" style="width:267px;" width="269"> <colgroup> <col /> <col /> <col span="2" /> </colgroup> <tbody> <tr height="18"> <td height="18" style="width:65px;height:18px;"><strong>Mile</strong></td> <td style="width:71px;"><strong>Time</strong></td> <td style="width:65px;"><strong>HR</strong></td> <td style="width:65px;"><strong>HR %</strong></td> </tr> <tr height="18"> <td height="18" style="height:18px;">1</td> <td>7:39:00</td> <td>140</td> <td>72%</td> </tr> <tr height="18"> <td height="18" style="height:18px;">2</td> <td>7:29:00</td> <td>157</td> <td>83%</td> </tr> <tr height="18"> <td height="18" style="height:18px;">3</td> <td>7:36:00</td> <td>158</td> <td>84%</td> </tr> <tr height="18"> <td height="18" style="height:18px;">4</td> <td>7:36:00</td> <td>161</td> <td>85%</td> </tr> <tr height="18"> <td height="18" style="height:18px;">5</td> <td>7:36:00</td> <td>161</td> <td>85%</td> </tr> <tr height="18"> <td height="18" style="height:18px;">6</td> <td>7:48:00</td> <td>163</td> <td>86%</td> </tr> <tr height="18"> <td height="18" style="height:18px;">7</td> <td>7:35:00</td> <td>162</td> <td>86%</td> </tr> <tr height="18"> <td height="18" style="height:18px;">8</td> <td>7:36:00</td> <td>164</td> <td>87%</td> </tr> <tr height="18"> <td height="18" style="height:18px;">9</td> <td>7:39:00</td> <td>164</td> <td>87%</td> </tr> <tr height="18"> <td height="18" style="height:18px;">10</td> <td><strong>8:17:00</strong></td> <td>168</td> <td>89%</td> </tr> <tr height="18"> <td height="18" style="height:18px;">11</td> <td>7:36:00</td> <td>169</td> <td>89%</td> </tr> <tr height="18"> <td height="18" style="height:18px;">12</td> <td>7:45:00</td> <td>169</td> <td>89%</td> </tr> <tr height="34"> <td height="34" style="height:35px;">13</td> <td><strong>7:04:00</strong></td> <td>174</td> <td>93%</td> </tr> <tr height="27"> <td height="27" style="height:27px;">13.1</td> <td>0:40:00</td> <td>178</td> <td>95%</td> </tr> <tr height="18"> <td height="18" style="height:18px;"><strong>Total</strong></td> <td><strong>99:56:00</strong></td> <td><strong>162</strong></td> <td><strong>86%</strong></td> </tr> <tr height="18"> <td height="18" style="height:18px;"><strong>Pace</strong></td> <td><strong>7:37:43</strong></td> <td>&nbsp;</td> <td>&nbsp;</td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <p><img alt="Image may contain: 1 person, outdoor" aria-busy="true" class="spotlight" src="https://scontent-dft4-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/23754644_10203909242369377_1846393961573579813_n.jpg?oh=b28c9891365cb5b14d8a89ec6c89ba6e&amp;oe=5A954859" style="width: 745px; height: 745px;" />&nbsp;</p> Sat, 18 Nov 2017 07:00:00 Thu, Nov 16, 2017 http://ptatum.fastrunningblog.com/blog-11-16-2017.html <p>Last and Short run before the race on Saturday.
