SF half marathon

Missed blogging a few other runs, mostly weekly runs and a small 8 miler on my birthday.

But ran the SF half. It was 13.1 miles and running on the bridge was fabulous. But after than the hills kept on comming. My knees I need to do something about them and I also pulled my hamstring at mile 11 and then I think it was all uphill.

I just felt bad that it was not my best, but it was a good lesson.
I need to remember.
1) Stretch well.
2) Take it slow in the beginning and maintain pace till the end.

Tuesday Track Workouts

It was tough as I was still a little sore, but felt strong and ran most 3 mile laps in about 9:15-9:25. So it was not so bad. :) But racing fast is what makes my mind go happy.

Boy was it fast. I was running the initial miles in less than 10 min/mile. After 8th mile, reduced speed to more than 10 min/mile. Wheww. But picked up pace in the last 1.1 mile and finished really strong. Finished in 2:12:19 net time, 2:13:20 official time.

Wheww simply amazing, even in my standards. :)

ran in portlan 6 miler less than 60 minutes. From Pune's house to 26 down shute road.
It was fun, but lonely, as the rest of the gang was deeply asleep.

thursday run -coyote creek

We ran the thursday as I was away at Portland for the weekend. It was awesome. Did a 10 miler with Arun Sharma, Pam and Gurmeet. Man was it tough, especially without the water. But the running part was cool and I felt great.
