aka, Operation Jack Satellite Run recap:
Inspired by Krissy's half marathon PR* on Saturday, I decided to give a half PR a shot during my 16 miles on Sunday. You know. Just for fun?
Easy 1.9 warm up, 2:09:09 13.1, easy 1 cool down.
Yeah. That's right. 2:09:09. That's. 2:21 pr over my last half (which was PCRF in May).
10:21, 10:10, 10:10, 10:01, 9:59, 9:50, 10:03, 9:48, 9:47, 9:48, 9:38, 9:36, 8:45, 8:45.
Heeeeeey, negative splits.
I don't have any half marathons on my radar (besides runDisney events, which totally don't count), so this was an interesting exercise. It certainly didn't feel as hard as I would have expected - just like normal tempo run tough, not like 5k-I-will-puke-momentarily tough.
I also had pretty tired legs - 8 kinda hilly miles the day before had me feeling a bit fatigued. Weird, since the 10/20 last weekend was so great. Eh. I also had a blister from the 8 miles (which is new, and I'm not entirely sure how it happened, because it's never happened before?) that I forgot to take care of. Kind of annoying, until it popped a few miles in and then it was just... Icky.
This is what a virtual run PR* looks like, I guess.
