MY FIRST 20K
WOW, I did my first 20K (12.1 miles) ever my longest distance yet, The Stratton Faxxon New Haven Road Race my official time was 2 hours and 39 minutes. I had a bit of a tough run considering what kind of week I had, but I did it. My 1/2 marathon will be very comfortable for me, hopefully I can improve on speed. I was a straggler may I say the least but I finished it. I just found out today that this race is the Official National Race for the 20K, which is so cool. I so glad I finished but I again, it was a tough run I walked alot and my heart rate was on the high side. I hope my training for the Half in October the ING DIRECT 1/2 MARATHON will be much better and I hope I'm feeling much better than today. I'll be a bit more comfortable with the 1/2 marathon now doing this race. Lets see how I feel tommorrow.
