Half-marathon at MP. I parked my car on the levee with some cups of Powerade on the trunk and took some GUs with me. The wind was howling, so hitting pace was out of the question. The weather has been nice to me up to this point.
I used a 2-mile stretch for out and backs. Took a cup of Powerade every 4 miles, and GUs at mile 3 and 10. Taking Powerade was not smooth.
1:16:15 for 5:49 avg. Splits: 5:35, 5:54, 5:44, 5:55, 5:36, 5:47, 5:48, 6:01, 5:44, 5:52, 6:01, 6:10, 5:34.
Had mostly a tailwind on the 2-miles out, and headwind on the way back. The wind beat me up. I eventually had to stop caring about splits and just run by feel.
PM - 4 recovery, no watch.
