CONGRATULATIONS to everyone who finished the half marathon, and especially to those of you who finished their first one or PR’ed. This was a great opportunity to practice for the LA Marathon, so I would encourage each of you to reflect on what you did well and what you want to work on. Did you start at the right pace? Were you able to finish strong? Did you eat appropriately before the race, and did you fuel enough during the event? Were you well hydrated? Did you warm up and and cool down enough so that you’re only a little sore today? Did you get some protein into you shortly after finishing so your muscles could start rebuilding? And most importantly – are you proud of yourself and psyched for Feb 14?!
