24 times up the Rock Pile

My 24th Mt. Washington Road Race went about as expected. 117th man and would have been the 25th woman (if I were a woman). 1:29:37. My 3rd slowest time in 24 tries.

I went through 1/2 way in 42:02. The wheels never really came off the bus like last year although because of the lack of base miles, I slowed at the top. Last year I RAN (not walked) a remarkably slow 13:53 for the last 0.7 miles. This year it was 8:18. My splits: 8:42, 11:00, 11:31, 11:48, 12:48, 12:43, 12:45 and the 8:18.

Since I last blogged, my mileage has been pitiful (left hammy issues). I ran 13 miles, 16 miles and then 20 miles (including the 8 miles on race day). I took 4 days after the MTN and did a very slow 2 miles yesterday, 6-23.

Looking forward to next year!!!! It'll be my 25th time up the rock pile!! Who knows, I may be able to run a sub-1:25 if I can just train adequately.
