2011 Brooklyn Half Marathon 1:25:06 / 6:29

Chip Time: 1:25:06
Pace: 6:29
Rank: 173/5909
Age Grade: 69.5%

After the disastrous 10K from last week, I'm very happy to grab my 5th fastest half marathon. I know I'm not in the best shape compared to last year where I ran 90 seconds faster. But I knew I had to start conservatively and save some at the end. Coming back from injuries is tough as I'm still recovering from my calf/achilles, minor health issues and medicated with decongestants. Hence from the get-go I knew that a PR was never in the works. However, if I'm able to finish a solid performance I'll be happy and hopefully the step in the right direction. Reviewing the splits I think I did ok where there were few fluctuations. Overall, I'm glad to get this result under my belt because within a span of 6 weeks, I've competed in 5 races (Boston Marathon, Scotland 10K, Newport 10K, Healthy Kidney 10K and Brooklyn Half). I really think it is time to take a step back to continue training and ease off the racing. Starting 5/22/11, there will be no racing for 4 weeks (or a month). There I said it otherwise, drinks on me!
