Half Marathon Results (~19-min faster)
 
Just finished October 2010 San Jose Rock 'n Roll Half Marathon (flat course, 13.1 miles), shaving ~19-minutes off my finish time at the November 2009 Big Sur Half Marathon (flat course, 13.1 miles). Crossfit works and works well but we knew that already (grin)

I did some air squats at the San Jose Half Marathon finish line, not sore at all, thinking about sneaking off to the Crossfit box to do the Crossfit Endurance "Strength & Conditioning Recovery Workout"

Only significant training in the 11-months between the two half-marathons was Crossfit HQ WODs and Crossfit Endurance WODs. Although I've been doing Crossfit for a year now, it has only been in the last three-months that I joined an actual Crossfit box. Big difference in the workout intensity between doing Crossfit on your own and at a box.

Congratulations! And that's a nice PR increase! (decrease?)

Congrats. What was your actual time?

Excellent job! I just finished my first half marathon Sep 25, with no training outside of the workouts at my gym. It took me until this weekend to truly recover, but I was in the gym all week regardless. I did 10 squats at the finish line as well- just to see if I could.
I'd love to run another one, and if I could cut even 15 min off my time I'd be elated!

Great improvement!

  • November 2009: Big Sur Half Marathon Chip Time = 02:27:16
  • October 2010: San Jose Rock 'n Roll Half Marathon Chip Time = 02:08:24
  • Delta Improvement = 00:18:52 (~ 19-minutes)

Only significant training was a mix of Crossfit Endurance WODs and regular Crossfit WODs. Unfortunately, I frequently failed to do both an Endurance WOD and regular WOD on the same day (as Rx). Instead it was often one or the other, rather than both.

As (if?) I get more serious, I might start doing the Endurance WODs in the morning and the Regular WODs in the evening or something.

Run another one next September- you ran one month earlier in the year and cut off that much time, if you run one in September you'll be under 2 easy!
