|I look like I am having fun. Another great race photo|
|although maybe better than this one, sorry random person. Hers was right before mine and made me feel a little better about my crappy photo. I bet she was excited to see hers too.|
Now there are 5 I believe. YAY! One in May, July, August, September and October. The July one I will be gone for as I will be busy running a Ragnar Relay that weekend in Washington. I am more than okay with that as that half marathon is always hot and miserable and is acutally run on the same course as the half in October.
I want to do the September and October ones for sure with the September one being an A race. I am torn on the August one a) it's still a hot time of year b) it's supposed to be downtown which could be a potentially boring course.
Kiley was incredibly generous and wrote me a plan for this last training cycle. I have never actually closely followed a plan, had one wrote for me or had one written down in general. I usually just worked in a long run, a speed session and some easier runs. I followed it pretty closely until the last couple weeks when I had an illness, bad weather and family visiting. Here are my thoughts on having a plan.
- it pushed me harder than I would have
- it was so convenient to have
- I would do it again
I am happy with my time difference, overall I finished two minutes faster on a slightly hillier course. They both started up hill followed by a lot of downhill. Bozeman's Run to the Pub then had two hills around mile 9-10 and a down hill finish. This last half in Billings had a hilly finish from mile 8.5 on and I felt like I finished stronger.
If you are looking for someone to write a plan for you or a coach I encourage you to contact Kiley, she is pretty awesome and she likes writing plans!
I love having a coach. My coach isn't a running coach, she's a crossfit coach. This works really well for me, since I'm ahem older, and can't do those high mileage training plans anymore. I'm really happy with my results!ReplyDelete
I love having a plan. It keeps me in check.ReplyDelete
