Final track day before UVM

1 mile warm up

4 x 400m at mp (1:33, 1:33, 1:40, 1:42) with 400m jog recovery

1 mile cool down.

Total 4 miles

I was trying to feel mp and just could not quite get it.  The 400s should have been 1:45.  Luckily I'll have my my garmin on race morning and hopefully that will help me get into the right pace.  I think I will actually just start out with the 3:05 pace group to try and get me off to the right pace and then decide if I should slow down or speed up about 10 miles into the race.

After the long bus ride up the canyon with my brother in law, Dan, who was running his first marathon, I enjoyed seeing Fly and Kelli at the start.  I felt fine and decided to stick with my plan of starting off with the 3:05 group.  After about the first 6 miles I was starting to tell I needed to slow down a bit.  Unfortunately I quickly fell about and got worse and worse as the race went on.  I really wanted to quit at about the 18 mile mark, but forced myself to keep putting one foot in front of the other.  I never walked, but I was not moving very fast.  It was great to see Smooth out there cheering on the runners.  That gave me a little boost.  Near the finish I saw my sweety and stopped and gave her a kiss.  I finished and was very tired.  I was about to excite the finish area when I realized I really wasn't doing well.  I went to the med tent and started throwing up and my limbs and head went all numb.  After about an hour and a half in the med tent and 3 IV bags I felt good enough to leave.  I still continued to commit for the next couple hours, but eventually felt normal again latter in the afternoon.  I don't know what happened to me. but I do know I pushed myself to my limit on that race.
