  1. RUN
    alright Nike Women's Half Marathon 13.1 mi 03:13 14:45 pace

    Absolutely loved this half around DC. They had a ton of things going on during the race so there was a lot to distract you :) I liked that there were so many runners too, about 15,000! The other ha... read more

      Awesome job and way to go getting through the half. When you hit the wall it's hard to keep going even if you have to walk a bit.

      Great job! Do you use any type of GU or anything during the run? That might help get you through. Whenever I feel that wall, I start to bargain with myself ... if you run the next mile, then you can have a 1 minute walk break, etc. It helps!

      Slowly building up a good base will help with the wall problem. Not sure what your weekly mileage is like, but if you were able to build up to 20-25 miles a week with long runs of 8-10 miles it will eventually increase your speed and help some with the wall problems. Some could be pre-race nutrition too. Glad you had fun though.

      I found lengthening stride creates problem, so I work on quicker leg turn over, less chance of over striding and injury. But if you wanna increase stride, then speed sessions will help.

      Agree 100% with Dean. Lengthening is an easy way to get injured. Do speed sessions to increase stride frequency. Great run. Hope the calf issue gets better.

      Good way to get some of the burn out of the legs. Be careful on the leg if you have trouble putting pressure on it. It could easily be just a nagging bruise, but be cautious. Great run.

      Hills can be a pain. They are great workouts though. Not getting enough nutrition can make a run harder, but you mentally pushed through and got it done. Great run.

      You'll get a lot of comments on this one. I have a garmin 210. I like it a lot, but it may give more information than you are looking for. Someone I know got the garmin 10 and it gives you time, distance and pace from what I know and it comes in several colors and not as costly as some GPS watches.

      Me too! I have a tough time breathing in the cold as well and haven't invested in a balaclava yet (though I'm not sure I'd wear it even if I had one!) I might start doing some lunch runs so I can be outside. I might be stinky for half the day, but I think that actually outweighs treadmill running :)
