tough 8

 Altra Rivera

tough 8km run. Great and beautiful morning but my legs felt worn out. I always forget until Friday that I should either not run on Thursday or just make it a light and easy run - otherwise it messes up my Friday run. My 8km run was at a good pace but it was very tough and I had to stop to rest several times.

good 12

Brooks

I went out for a run and felt good but was a bit unmotivated and was looking for excuses to stop. I was kind of hoping it would start pouring rain nit he middle and give me an excuse to stop. It was a good run overall at a good pace, but I stopped a few times to rest or adjust or whatever. I was really looking forward to a run closer to the 15km range but then once I started I was thinking more the 6km range. I kept going back and forth in my mind while running and at some point I just decided to surpass Wednesday's run. I ended at 12km

good 7.5

 Brooks

good 7.5km. been taking it easy recently, partly because of being slightly under the weather, so went out for a run today but didnt want to overdo it, so kept it to a 7.km at a decent pace. Felt good overall.

Jerusalem 21.1km Half Marathon

 Altra Rivera

I couple of weeks ago I decided to sign up to run the half marathon in the Jerusalem Marathon event. I dont remember what my last race was, but it has been a few years since I participated in any race.

I decided to run the half marathon, even though it is a little bit longer than my longest long runs in recent times. The hills of Jerusalem are very tough so I didnt know how I would do, but I employed my new hill strategy of taking it slow on the hills and running harder on the downs and flats. I think it was successful as I finished the race at give or take my expected time, and I did not even stop once to rest nor did I walk at all.

It was a beautiful day, a beautiful city, a beautiful race.

21.1km in 2:22:22 (official time) to keep all the OCD people satisified


BTW, I beat the Marathon winner, who rana  2:24... then again, he ran the full marathon and I only ran the half..

prep 5

 Altra Rivera

Went out for a slow 5km. It was a good run and even though it was slow, it was a little faster than I had planned for. I just want to keep the legs stretched out right now for Friday's half marathon in Jerusalem, but dont want to go into it with tired and worn out legs....

good 19

 Altra Rivera

good 19km run. vacillated between running long and running medium, and changed decisions multiple times throughout the run. in the end I pushed to 19 and overall felt good, even though I took it a little slow.
