Half marathon #2 of the year is in the books. http://running-with-coffee.blogspot.com/2012/10/mo-cowbell-h...I really enjoyed the race, despite the pain I developed. My training plan was ideal for a flat course. The problem is there is 2 miles of hills which shoots down the flat plan. I am in a lot of pain today, but am taking it easy, I don't have to work, so that is good.What I liked about the race:Great organizationGreat volunteer supportPretty courseCowbellsWhat I didn't like:Almost no sports drink. I could never tell which table, and the volunteers handed me sports drink, but it tasted like water, and I don't mean flavored water, just water. Did they make sports drink? Was glad I had my bottle of NUUN.Finished in 3:28:22. Happy with that. Monumental Half is a month away. I expect a faster time.Moo on!Charlie
My training plan was ideal for a flat course. The problem is there is 2 miles of hills which shoots down the flat plan. Doncha just hate it when race organisers sneak these Bad Boys in??I remember my first half after my planatar fasciitis eased up years ago. It was sometime in the early Spring and I'd done pretty much 99.99% of my training on a treadmill at the gym. My daughter gave me so much earache about doing some hillwork you wouldn't believe but, my neighbour had slipped on a patch of ice that Winter while out power walking and broken her wrist.......so Mommy had no intention of going that route, thank you very much indeed!I'll wager that these "hills" we encountered were little more than false flats but they certainly gave me a spanking. Out of the mouths of babes, right?Congratulations, Charlie......and thanks for posting your blog address. I like reading your reports and commentaries and whatnot and your blog joined DC Rainmaker's in my reshuffle of my web addresses.Spank On!!Vivienne
