10/5/09 4 miles EASY + NYC Marathon Tip

October 5, 2009 Leave a comment

Took Yesterday off, and went 4 easy today. Felt some soreness and stiffness due to Sat. Race. But overall recovering well.

My #1 Advice/Tip to anyone running NY. DON’T GO OUT TOO FAST. It is VERY exciting at the start, going over the bridge and then DOWN the bridge, and THEN entering the Brooklyn fans. Just remember for every minute you are out too fast, it will cost you 4 minutes at the end.

My Dad ran only one marathon in his long running career.  His time was 3:29 at a very small marathon in 1978 in Saginaw, Michigan.

My Mom ran Chicago in 4:48 in 1997 at age 48, and came back in ’98 to run Detroit in 4:22, impressive, started running in her 40’s.

I plan to crush my Marathon PR this year at NY, low goal is sub 3:15 (Boston Qualifying), Medium goal is sub 3:05, Ideal goal is 2:55

Here is a link to all my races that Athlinks has access to.

It’s difficult to find results that are pre 1997
