Race To Robie Creek Half Marathon Recap

Nothing more motivating to typing up a new blog post then doing a half marathon. :-) FYI - this is a very photo heavy post so be warned.

Saturday was the Race to Robie Creek half marathon. The toughest race in the Northwest. This year was my 6th year in a row to participate in it. A very big accomplishment for me.

I went into this race knowing that I was not well trained. I didn't really train much and nothing at any real distance. The two best training trots were the two weeks before the race when I did some hikes and runs in the Boise foothills. Those were 6 miles each. Totally phoned in my training but no complaints about any of it. I finished and I am not even as sore as I have been in previous years! Win win to me!

I planned on finishing in 4 hours. That is what I was guesstimating on those two 6 milers. I finished in 3:32. This is 15 minutes slower then last year. My finish line video is below.


The race start was a smidge long at the start because of some road construction…

I noticed that my top search result has been about my 50K training plan ever since I have posted about it. I decided on a plan that I found via an online search from UltraLadies. I am posting all of my weeks below of training until my April 2013 50K in links below.
