Well despite posting a month ago saying that I would be posting more soon, I didn’t keep to my promise very well! However, it’s been an action packed month these last few weeks:
I set a new PR for the half marathon at the beginning of April (1:19:24). I’m quite pleased by that time. Now that I’ve finally broken 1:20, it really puts the relative difficulty of that into perspective and makes me realize how much I was talking out of my ass here and here as well as a host of other places in the past (I’m sure). I’ve come to realize just how fast running a 1:14 is – it’s truly frightening. Let’s not even talk about the fact that the world record is well under an hour.
Between the adoption, J-hawk and the half marathon PR, I’m very much looking forward to the next few months of training, racing, and parenthood.
As I mentioned last time, I’ve got a lot of topics on the burner: Specific Prep, some product reviews (SpeedConcept 9 series vs. Cervel Dual, Zipp 808 FC, Carbon Wheel Brake pad comparison, shoes and some other fun stuff). So bear with me and stay tuned!
