Ironman–a part time job

I heard someone say that the cost of drug addiction was not just the time spent doing drugs but the time spent thinking about doing drugs and the time spent getting the money to buy drugs.  Fortuneatly I have never had to experience this in person.

2012 Rock N Roll New Orleans Race Report–Half Marathon

So my ITB was acting up in early January. This caused me to shut down my marathon volume build prematurely. With that, the sub-3 marathon goal went out the window. I was having pain and discomfort in sessions as short as 4 miles. With the reduced volume, my speed took off. I was running fantastically fast but short. As my injury improved, I was able to push the distance to the 10-mile mark. I was still able to run fast.

2012 pre-race day

It is the day before the Rock’N Roll marathon (half marathon) and this has definitely been a lack luster season of running. There have been a couple of highs and many more lows. Even back in December I knew that the dream of a sub-3 would be a near insurmountable challenge. My volume was building. I was ‘tricking’ myself into transforming my easy run pace of 8 minute miles to 7:30 minute miles.
