Running week of May 30-June 5

So this week was last minute training for the upcoming North Shore Half Marathon.  At the beginning of the week, I felt great coming off of Battlefrog.  I recovered in time and did the necessary stretching and recovery runs.  Then midweek I had way too much to get done and skipped running for the three days prior to the race…mistake 1.  I was really hoping to have a hometown PR in this race despite the Park Avenue hill after mile 7.  Well, I just did not prepare properly for the race.  I didn’t eat anything race morning even though I know I should take in some calories.  A few more lessons learned but that will be under the blog review for the race itself!  Onto a much better week!

North Shore Classic Half Marathon
The day started out pretty darn good with a little cloud cover and a cool breeze. Race time was at 7:30ish and I started in Corral E (2nd of the 1/2 marathon).  I felt good for the first few miles keeping up with the 9:00 minute pacer.  Right around mile 7 I started to pull back as I was just exhausted.  I didn’t eat any breakfast and I know I should have fueled my body somehow!  I only brought 2 GUs and used only 1 so that only added to my demise.  The last couple of miles were tough but I pushed through.
Mile 1 8:30 pace
Mile 2 8:47 pace
