It's been a busy and cold winter. I'm not making excuses for limited training but just stating facts--busy and damn cold. Earlier this month I flew to Vegas for work (CES show) and only managed to squeeze in a 2 hour run, a couple of bike trainer sessions and a short swim. Then the week after I headed off to San Diego and managed to run 51K over a week's time. Coming back to Hong Kong I jumped right into to Chinese New Year holidays and family commitments (and jet-lag)--all of which had to take priority over training. Anyhow, I cranked out a 42K running week and now I have to switch to taper mode with only a handful of days to go until race morning.
I looked back at my 2010 HK SCM performance to see if there were clear areas that I could strategically manage better. Check it out:
This chart is primarily looking at heart rate. From what I gather, "A" probably caused "B." I set off too hard running in Z5 for 8 kilometers and then settled into race pace for the middle section and then finally collapsed at 32K and just suffered my way slowly on to the finish.
