Race day tomorrow morning. There are some downhill sections that look about like you’re getting shoved down a flight of stairs. I have no idea what to expect.

For anyone interested I’m #412 on the Ironman tracker app ☮️

good luck….if we don’t hear from you we will assume you’re lying in a ditch somewhere

Just assumed watch bpm was not that accurate but did catch a bpm spike my last run, considering still getting over a sinus cold and was severely fatigued/pain where last few times I haven't.

Hey bros I have to admit Im taking a break from running and have been lifting + using a stairmaster for cardio.

Ive been enjoying using the stairmaster because I can keep an elevated heart rate, sweat my ass off, and recover easy peasy. I still get my runners high and don’t have any achey knees, Achilles, calves, etc.

I feel better doing this type of cardio :hs:

Signed up for Golden Gate Half in November, so I've started upping my distances a bit.

Mostly concerned about finding parking though. :hmm:
Race is early on a Sunday morning, so public transit won't be running. Going to have to actually drive into SF and try to find parking before a 7am start. :wtc:

Hoping for <2hr time == ~9min/mile pace.

where does the race start? i mean where do you have to park?

If you’re running on Embarcadero you’ll pass my place:

Starts at Ghirardelli Square (Aquatic Park), then over the bridge and back.

No idea where to park or what streets will be closed that day.

there’s a parking lot that’s not metered here:
Parking, Van Ness Ave

Its usually not full and definitely wouldn’t be early in the morning but I dunno if it will be full because of the race. Otherwise there’s plenty of metered parking around Ghirardelli square.

keep those calves stretched out and think about doing some heel lifts pre-workout to get the achilles engaged - are you wearing no drop shoes by chance?

yep.. was doing all that. Switched away from zero drops to Brooks Ghosts in March or April and even took a couple weeks off twice and nothing really changed.

I started running after a long layoff in 2010, in Vibrams, so I've been in minimalist shoes since then. This is the first year I've had any issues. :hsd:

My achilles tendinitis lasted 3-4 mos but I stretched & trained around it. I'm in zero drop Altras now, stretch less and feel better. Good luck
