Eric's Half-Ironman Training

I am now training for my second half-ironman race. The race is in Boulder this time in August, 2007. I finished the Florida Half-Ironman in May, 2007. Wish me luck!

My running plans changed today. According to my plan I was to run 1 hour long at RPE 2-3 steady. The Rocky Mountain Road Runners Club had a Colfax Marathon training series today. It was a 10 mile run.

Nicole came with me today because we were going to my grandmothers birthday party. Grandma is turning 88 years old.

My run today was awesome. I finished in 4th place overall today. The top 3 runners won prizes, but I didn't care. I thought I started too fast!!! I told Nicole that I was not going to run a 6:00 min mile. I was going to run my first mile in 8:00 minutes. I was told that Miles 5 and 6 were a little longer than the rest. That would make sense why the times were off a little. A runner was catching up to me towards the end. I was not going to let him catch me. I pushed it extra hard just so he wouldn't catch me. I couldn't sprint the finish like I normally do, but I finished it strong.

10 miles
Mile 1: 6:39, Mile 2: 6:08, Mile 3: 6:41, Mile 4: 6:39, Mile 5: 8:08, Mile 6: 7:51, Mile 7: 6:54, Mile 8: 7:30, Mile 9: 7:21, Mile 10: 7:18
Pace: 7:07
Total Time: 1:11:07
