Marathon Splits

I finally got a little time to sit down and get my split info from the marathon off my watch. As mentioned in the previous post, I missed a few of the mile markers. When this happened I averaged the time across the miles (marked with asterisks below); good enough for my purposes.

  • Mile 1: 9:04
  • Mile 2: 8:59
  • Mile 3: 8:42*
  • Mile 4: 8:42*
  • Mile 5: 8:46
  • Mile 6: 9:00
  • Mile 7: 8:42*
  • Mile 8: 8:42*
  • Mile 9: 8:53
  • Mile 10: 9:25
  • Mile 11: 8:48
  • Mile 12: 8:53
  • Mile 13: 8:59*
  • Mile 14: 8:59*
  • Mile 15: 9:25
  • Mile 16: 9:16
  • Mile 17: 9:42
  • Mile 18: 9:20
  • Mile 19: 9:34
  • Mile 20: 9:32
  • Mile 21: 9:53
  • Mile 22: 10:31
  • Mile 23: 10:35
  • Mile 24: 10:49
  • Mile 25: 11:55
  • Mile 26: 11:32*
  • The Final .2: 2:18*

Until mile 22, things were looking pretty solid; far more consistent that I would have guessed. After that, the wheels really started to come off. Taking nice leisurely strolls through the water stops give my legs a little break, then trying almost in vain to get up a light jog again.

People keep asking me I’m gonna try my next marathon (including one person who was astounded that I wouldn’t be giving the Wineglass a shot in 2 weeks.) My stock reply is that its gonna be at least another year before I’ll consider another marathon. Guess I need a lot of time to forget how painful those last 3 miles are.
