+6 to 16 total. Good run this morning, felt easy, met my tempo goal of under 8 minutes per mile and under 160 heart rate. When I can do that I know I'm in the running groove.

Yes, good luck Steve. Remember, after your long ass 13 mile run, realize you are only halfway done.

Thanks for the well wishes guys! Unfortunately my race was a disaster. I was done in by my cold that I'm not quite over, OR I over estimated my fitness level. Probably a little of each.
I was shooting for a 4:20 marathon. That would have been 15 minutes faster than the last one. My plan called for 9 miles at 10:05 mm, then the next 9 at 9:55 mm, the last 8 at 9:42 mm. First 15 miles went according to plan, everything felt easy. Then it started feeling like work. By mile 19 I had to start doing the run/ walk thing. Still trying to push through it. By mile 22 I was dealing with cramping arms, calfs and quads. Still doing the run walk, I did manage to run in the last mile. Finished 8 minutes slower than my may race. I'm pretty bummed at my poor performance but glad I finished. Right now I'm F'ing sore!

Bahahahaha that sucks, been there before dude, and that was only a half marathon for me. Every race can't be great, so learn what not to do the next one and this will have been worth it. Next one you'll kill it. Live to fight another day.

I ran this one because I wasn't satisfied with the last one.
At mile 19 i was thinking fuck, now I have to do this again!

Thanks for the words of encouragement!

That is hilarious, because I have said that each of the 3 years I've done a half Ironman. I think you can always "do better" and will keep trying for a PR every year.
