After some sporadic training and some weeks with "kilometerage" under 60 km, I'm finally running painless again. I've had to adjust my training plan to something between the pfitz 70/18 and 55/12 plan, but so far it's going great.

Last Sunday I had planned to run a half marathon race at marathon pace, but I couldn't keep the speed down after the gun went off, I really should have known. 4-5 km in to the race I decided to just see what I had. I hadn't tapered before the race and did some lifting the day before, but really felt great.

I managed to run strong the whole race, negative splitting the race with close to 2 minutes and setting a new PR at 1:36:03. I could probably have done a little better if I had paced more evenly and had a slighter negative split. 2 minutes means I ran the first part a little bit soft. I'm gunning for sub 1:35 next month at the B.T. Half marathon.
