|Perfect Sunday morning to run a marathon|
This time around, there was no doubt in my mind that I will finish my 2nd full marathon and I am not bonking. I will run the race at the speed/pace as planned. Finish Time is not a factor.
10 Km: 57:09 Pace: 9:12 - Enthusiastic runners and spectators got me distracted. Ran faster than planned.
12:5 Mile: 2:07:48 Pace: 10:19 - The most crowded portion of the course and few feets from the ocean.
18 Mile: 3:02:47 Pace: 10:10 - Got motivated by the cheers of LBSU students. Gave left and right high fives.
24 Mile: 4:20: 03 Pace: 10:51 - (Heat 80+) affected me. Drank lots of liquids but mouth still dry. Slow jogged.
26.2 Mile: 4:48: Pace: 11:00 - Speed up a little bit and crossed the Finish Line without Bonking but _ _ _
Right after I received my finisher medal, I felt sick. My legs and stomach cramped and had to be helped by my partner/wife walked to the car. After resting for 30 minutes inside the car with the aircon on, I felt better. Had to sleep with wet towel on my forehead to lower my body temperature. I think I got a mild case of heat stroke. Oh well, the beauty of running the full marathon _ _ _ Full of Surprises.
