March 1st, The Cowtown 50K in Fort Worth, Texas. Fort Worth had a snow and freezing rain event two days before the Race. A big hats off to the Cowtown race committee and volunteers for clearing a half marathon course for us. So my 50K turned into a half Marathon. To be honest I did not know how to approach racing a half marathon. Last summer I spent so much time working on speed and half marathons I burned out my legs. Speed walking just takes me too long to recover from. I knew I did not want to burn out my legs. I did not want to slip and hurt anything on the ice. So, I raced by feel. I felt great. Wet roads and loose sand does not help the toe push needed to race walk. Slush makes your socks wet. I found my last Marathon pace easy to hold this race. I had a nice boost of speed the last 3 miles. So, I had a very good Half Marathon. 2:21:56. My legs feel great. I am going to walk easy a couple of days then jump back into my training. Skip my regular recovery week. Just under 4 weeks to the A2A Marathon.
