New PR by 25 seconds or so. Not what I hoped for today, but I know I'm overtraining a bit right now. Strong finish salvaged otherwise sour mood about the race.

    Damn that's fast! Overtrained? Probably
    PR? Certainly

    I bet you need a least 3 or 4 complete rest days. Your body needs to REPAIR from this and that other training.

    Amazing race Greg. AMAZING!

    A PR is awesome, especially considering all you've been going through lately. I'm so far from PR shape that I'd do almost anything for something similar. Great job!

    Glad to hear it was a strong finish, and bonus for getting a PR! Really impressive just a week out from head cold, which as you may recall, Sir Batman, came on the heels of a stomach bug!

    A PR is a PR. Besides this is not your A race either. You never know what is going to happen for the B races as you generally run through them.

    Sorry that it was not what you expected it to be. Obviously we all think that you knocked it out of the park especially given the intensity of your training cycle and the flu followed by a cold. Give your body a day or two to absorb this one if you can. Congrats on the PR.

    Greg that is one hell of a race to pull off during this training plan. Especially in the middle of the two weeks you are in. Stay positive, you are training for the Tow Path Marathon not today's Half. Pfitzinger has you right were you need to be in the first weekend in October. Congrats on the PR, you. You are a beast, and oh yeah sorry about another year for the Browns!
