Chasing 2:00

Sunday, January 13, 2013

It's now about seven weeks to my next HM where I'm going to try to break 2 hours. To do this, I will need to finish about 5 minutes faster than my first HM (nov 2012). This is a challenge laid down by my running buddy from 20 years back; we are training "vitually together" and will run the race together. It's a nice way to reconnect with an old friend and keep the challenge in our running!

    Nice to train with a buddy, virtual or otherwise. Good luck busting through the 2:00 mark. I just want to get back to that distance again.

    I hope you can see this.

    it's me in Runner's World back in PR at the time was 2:05 and it took me 2 tries, but got it down under 2 hours with some dedicated speedwork.

    Ah, the allusive next finishing time. I admire 2:00. I tried in my last HM to cross the two hour hurdle but missed it by 4 minutes. Will admit to running harder than I ever have for two solid hours but more training required. But my first HM was 2:29 so I smoked up my previous years' result.

    I really wish you the best as I understand that desire to keep getting faster. I'm sure 7 weeks is plenty of time to build the endurance and speed you will need to improve by 5 minutes. And don't underestimate adrenalin on the day!
