Top First Job
Last Sunday, I had my last competition in 2009. I took part in Graz Halfmarathon, a nice event with a lot of spectators and a motivating atmosphere along the whole course. I had a good feeling during the first kilometers in my legs and hoped to be much faster than the time I was aiming for (73min). But at km 10 I had to confess, that the beginning speed was to high and so I had to slow down during the second part.
Addittionally, I've got stitch already after 5 km, maybe my drinking habbits were not trained good enough. The pain accompanied my body until km 12. Anyway, I tried to ignore them as good as possible and except of the pain, I don't think they made my speed decrease.
On the last 2 km I tried to mobilise all my saved energies. I finished with a time of 72:47, place 6 in the hm-category. Moreover, I succeed in the "first job challenge", a separated category of all rookies.
0-5km 16:56 3:23
5-10km 16:37 3:19
10-15km 17:48 3:33
15-20km 17:50 3:34
20-21,1km 3:36 3.16
Now, it's time to recover, relax and drink some bottles of SISSI to get ready for the training period for season 2010.
