The first half was too hot. And my first. And almost a trail race, which I wasn’t ready for and really sorta hurt myself. I started to slow after the 10k. My porridge was 2:16:18
The second half was too cold. And I was sick. And OMFG the hills. I started to slow after mile 7 and even had to walk a few times. My porridge was 2:19:36
The third half was just right. I was healthy and rested. Couldn’t have asked for more perfect weather. Comparably flat (mostly). I made it through mile 10 without any issue, slowed for mile 11, and picked it back up for the last mile. My porrige was a kick ass PR of 2:08:08.
Those bears got nothin’ on me.
More later, I have champagne to enjoy.
p.s. Love my Zliten for being my most awesome athletic supporter (hehe).
