I wanted to do a post-Boston post to let you know how I felt. I think it is just dawning on me that I did a SUB 3!!! 2:58:34!!
I am/was a little annoyed that the downhills killed my quads. I trained to charge the uphills as those are usually my nemesis, but I didn't think running downhill was a big deal (ha). Oh well, still a good race. I'm not complaining, yet I don't think I'll ever be 100% happy with any performance. Hence the life of a runner.
I haven't run at all yet. I wanted to do a good reset while I figure out what is next. That is still pending. I have a knack for falling in love with sold out races and then begging for a bib. Arg! I think I will do an easy 30 min run today. I've been at the gym everyday this week walking on the treadmill for an hour to 1h45m. I think it has helped a lot.
Oh, also, my Garmin shit the bed. My data won't upload. I have no splits!! It worked during the race but it's toast now. Someone emailed me this split sheet though. It's hard to see but depicts the usual. A slow death at the end:
Because we all love race pics here are some. I had to fold and buy them. I figure it is Boston and my first sub 3! Holla!!!
|due to popular complaint I waited to hit stop but they still got a pic of it!|
|Never a glamorous pose but something happens on those finish mats that makes me do that!|
|I tell you Boyleston st. is the longest street ever. I have no idea how this picture isn't worse. I was done!|
Alright peeps, I'm out. Hopefully I'll have my next race nailed down soon! Keep you posted!!
