Hyannis 1/2 marathon mini report and garmin file

Untitled by donnafurse at Garmin Connect - Details

Not a great day for me on the course.It was a PR on this course but not my Half PR. Lessons learned today:

1. stop treadmill running, I know its convenient and sometimes it has to be done but I could tell a big difference in my durability on my legs. Miles on the treadmill and miles on the road are just not the same.

2. I needed to drink more and I didn't take my second GU, ? whether or not this affected me or not but I may need to consider running with my fuel belt if I can't drink enough during the race.

3. Wind is not my friend

4. I need to mentally strong the whole race, I tend to drift around mile 7-10 and then regather my thoughts and push to the end, usually these are my slowest miles for some reason.

5. I need to move on from today quickly because if I dwell on my performance today it will ruin further workouts this week and I have two weeks of build right now and they are important.

6. I need to snap out of this funk from today, I felt I disappointed myself and my coach.


  1. Every race, every training, everyday we learn something about ourselves...Mentally, physcially, and emotionally. It truely is the bad races that make the good races great. Bounce back, focus on your build weeks and kick ass in Texas.

  2. Thanks Dan, thats what I need to do. Hope all is well.

    1. Honestly, it sounds like a great race!!! Look at all the lessons you learned in a quick 13.1! It could have taken several races (full tri')to figure everything out you did on Sunday. With being over trained last season and learning at a "race" that is ment for a tune up and to learn at it sounds like you did amazing. Texas is your "A" race apply what you learned and when you cross that finish line it will be euphoric!
