So a few weeks back I completed my first half marathon. In spite of the hamstring injury during training I made it to the starting line and achieved my goal of running the race in under 2 hours, actually 1 hour 52 minutes 9 seconds.
I was quite surprised how good I felt at the end which kind of makes me wonder how much I could have pushed it during the race.
The hamstrings held up, but instead I ended up with a burning on the right side of my right knee. From what I can determine it is probably an aggravate IT band.
Now, I need to decide what to do next .... onto barefoot running.
