Post race recovery and A little bit of bragging.

I seem to be recovering well after my half marathon (PR) on Sunday. Monday was a nice rest day that included crawfish and beer with my family. Yesterday I was looking at some of my stats from the race and although I am no where near fast or was no where close to winning. I took pleasure in some of mt results. My splits were all negative, @ mile 6.214 my avg pace was 10:29 (gradually all up hill) @ mile 3.784 (still mainly up hill) and finally going down hill the last 3.109 miles were @ 9:08 avg pace. In the final 3 miles I passed 411 ppl and was only passed by 13. There were 3083 woman that finished behind me and 1717 a head of me. The last one I will brag about is that I beat 39% of men. So I did not win the race but I kick alot of azz. Last night I went to the track for 3.5 easy miles. I felt tired after my run but not sore. Tonight is Master's swim.

Hope to see you on the roads soon!

negative splits, passing people, setting a new PR....I think you earned the right to brag a bit.
Youd did great!
