I set a goal, put out a strategy to keep me on track and I gave it my best shot.
Result: I did not succeed in setting a PR and I have NO EXCUSES for that. I believe it is okay to fail sometimes. 😐
One thing I did not anticipate in my run today is that the 10K Runners would occupy the entire road for the last 3-4 kms and then it is not so easy to run past them at a FAST pace OR to find your way to the finish line.
To fix this, I would remove a couple of minutes from second half of my Negative Split strategy and run the first half slightly quicker. That should compensate for the loss in time towards the end of the race.
It was my last Half Marathon “Race” attempt this year and in the next two months now I will concentrate on my training plan for TMM 2019. 🏃🏻♂️👍🏼
So what to do when you don’t reach your goals? Keep calm and stay relaxed, recover and get back stronger. 💪🏼
PRs will come. If not today, some other day. Don’t ever give up. 🙌🏼 Okay?
