Todd Run Far

Yesterday, in preparation for the Kaiser/Pamakid Half-Marathon in two weeks, I ran 12 miles in and around Golden Gate Park. I ran with a bunch of folks from the "other" tri club, SF Tri Club, and we did most of the Kaiser course at a little under 10-minute-mile pace. This is actually the longest run I've ever done, and it went well. I started to fade around mile 8, but then for some strange reason I picked up speed on the uphill and was able to keep pace with an Ironman guy. It was probably a matter of switching muscles. Anyhow, I'm feeling a bit sore today, but feeling a lot more confident that I can complete the half-marathon at a decent pace. Posted by todd at January 23, 2006 01:37 PM
