Ministry of silly walks


I was kind of hoping the video of the finish would show a little bit more of my post marathon attempt at walking but it does catch a bit of a wobble. Enjoy! :D

    1. Thank you but I can't take credit for the first half, ran with 3 hour group. I guess the last part I was just in a groove, if only it could have been a faster one! I didn't wear a watch, kind of hate the garmin!

  2. That is an amazing race, and the way I look at it you didn't blow, you set out just to slow... I have lead many a sub 3 bus and the aim is alway 21:00 at 5km. yes you did pull it back nicely in the 5 to 15km, but I feel we (non pro's) need a couple of minutes in the bag, I would have had you aim at 88 for the 1st half, and then if you were strong picking it up for a 2h55 or hanging in for a 2h59.

    1. and there it is, the truth. My coach wanted me to go out faster and my head wasn't there. I do feel like I was a bit of a wimp in this one but lack of racing and the fact I'm improving all the time ie I've come from such a slow place left me uncertain.
      I was a bit scared of the distance and the uncertainty of what would happen to me in those last 6 miles if I 'blew up'. This was only marathon number 2.
      I know what I have now and I'm very confident I'm going to be in way better shape for the next one so there will be no 3 hour pace group, I will go for it from the gun.
      My training buddy gave it what she had from the gun and I admire her for that, but maybe all the marathons she's done and her faith in her 'bible' Jack Daniels allowed her that courage. I aim to emulate that courage next time.

  3. EXCELLENT job, girl!!!!! From what I heard, that Houston weather wasn't too pretty, either. All your hard work and determination paid off. VERY happy for you; you totally deserve this! Recover well; you have lots of great things in store for you.

    WOOT WOOT! :)

    1. Thank you! The weather was great really. Imagine if it had been hot and humid and you know Houston can do that to you in January! So I for one, was happy to be stood in the icy cold rain, ready and raring to go ;D

    2. 12 min miles? That is awesome that you timed them! I am always afraid to time my miles when I have severe DOMS ;)
