Half Marathon Number SIX!

Unless I forgot to blog about some random race then today's little jaunt is number six on the list of Half's that I have run in 2012.

No idea how today is going to go, to be honest, I'm not feeling very fast right now so I estimate that a PR is out of the question. My guess based on recent 5K and 10K sprints which left me gasping like a beached whale lead me to the belief that 1:45 is attainable. I do not think that this will be the day to sub 1:40 AT ALL. And kids, I'm not sandbagging. When it comes to kicking ass at this distance speed work- and lots of it- is my friend. And speed work just re-entered my life after marathoning/shin shit/ foot shit/ long runs taking up my speed work time... Whoops!

I am looking forward to running today and hope to enjoy the race regardless of the outcome.

Let's recap the Half's I have done thus far:

#1: The Indoor Half, a PR at the time...

#2: Half At The Hampton's, not much to say...

#3: Quincy Half, a fairly weak effort.

#4: GBH: Killer PR plus I meet all of my favorite people!

#5: Maine Half: Great race with my favorite boy. Bad weather..

This is the worlds laziest post. And also reconfirms my feeling that this is gonna be a 1:45 kind of day.


  1. She is totally sandbagging don't listen to her! It is the same thing she said before MDI where she "strolled" to 30 second over Boston qualifying time and won her age group (but then was to silly to check and didn't get her sweet award cause she left to early!)

  2. Did I miss where today's was? I have done 5 halves this year and have no expectations to make it 6.

    1. It was the all womens half-blog to come later!

  3. "Not sandbagging" -

    1. Sandbagging definition:
      When a player in any game chooses (on purpose) to not play their best. Normally this is because they are too superior, they want to hustle you, or they are too lazy to play their best with nothing on the line.

      I am lazy.....

    2. "A person acts as if he/she is at a lower skill level than he/she actually is so he/she can achieve better during competition"

      And I quote, " I do not think that this will be the day to sub 1:40 AT ALL."
