Toronto Waterfront Half Marathon – Briefly

1:42.11! (That’s more than 10 minutes off my old PR of 1:52:29!)

Ok, so I raced it. I checked my email this morning and saw Adeel in the comments giving me the go ahead to race. It kind of just happened, but I went for it.

Anyway, I’ll post more details when I have better internet access, but I had a great race. My ankles are a bit sore, but not too bad. Hopefully, I didn’t do anything bad, and I can get right back into my training. I’ll probably turn this week’s tempo run into an easy run on Tuesday, and do my speedwork on Wednesday. I then have another 3 day holiday, before my next long run on Sunday.

Yahoo! Quite the improvement. It is really hard not to go for it in a race. I don't that you've hurt your training at all. The confidence boost alone has got to be worth something.

Congrats!

Congrats. I have found that races I don't plan to race hard end up being the best runs.

Wow! That's really impressive. That's with the First plan? I might want to try that one as I'm getting tired of running 5 days a week.

Fast time indeed. You've come a long way by smart, methodical training and battled through injuries as well. Good luck in your M.
