A Trend and A Lie

April 30, 2013 — Leave a comment

The Trend:

At lunch, I checked to see if any pictures had been uploaded from Sunday’s Big Sur Marathon.  The header of my page caught my eye…it really put the past 19 months into perspective!


That said…

The Lie:

In my post yesterday, I wrote, “I’m happy with my time: 3:59:45 @ 9:09 pace.”

Full disclosure: I lied.

I should have said that I was OK with my time…but that’s just me…racing against myself…knowing what I coulda done.

Still, I am hugely satisfied (SUB-FOUR, BABY!), and will certainly reflect that in my race report (probably posted tomorrow.)  It’s just the post-race, “if I had only” or “If I hadn’t of” thoughts that have been running through my mind.  I know they’re common though, so I’m sure I am in good company…


Training Journal – 4/30/13:

  • Current plan: Big Sur Marathon Recovery Week / Horseshoe Lake 50K Training Plan
  • Today’s session: 4 mile easy run
  • Comments: I did 4.25 @ 8:36.  Not “easy”, but it did feel good.  We’ll see how things go tomorrow!
