train wreck race. body was broken down out of nowhere & it had nothing to do with the marathon.

long story short:
- got ~3 hours sleep.
- left hip/left low back/right achilles were bugging from the start of the race.
- left hip tweaked around mile 10. had to "safe run" 16 miles.
- shut it down completely at mile 23 when my hip tweaked again. just jogged it in super slow.
- half marathon was ~2:50 marathon pace, and that was after running the last 3 miles of that 13.1 at 7+ .. sucks :/
- i was ~4th or 5th OA @ mile 15
- I was ~8th or 9th OA @ mile 23 (still 2:58-2:59 marathon pace)
- just couldn't risk pushing it those last miles. plenty of time to run some great marathon times. made the decision to just let it slip away & it didn't bug me at all. safety first.
- i lost like ~10 minutes on my final 3.2 miles, 9:XX-10:XX min/mi pace :ninja:

apparently I made the Boston 2019 qualifying standard.. but not the guaranteed acceptance time. pretty cool.





left hip/low back still hurting. hope it heals up quick.

going to take some rest days.

could have dropped something big. really sucks.

slept alot afterwards.

06:00 AM: (wreckage - race injuries) Fort Lauderdale Marathon: 18th OA / 3rd AG @ 3:09:33 ::: had to shut it down completely the last 3 miles (hip) /// significant left hip tweak @ mile 10, right achilles felt odd mile 1+ /// my first official marathon!

- marathon PR: 3:09:33 (-20min) :personal-record:
- 10k split: 38:XX
- half marathon split: 1:25

sucks but whatever. felt like I was in great shape for this. once the mile splits hit 7+ min/mi, i couldn't keep it under 7 without my hip freaking out.. felt something in there earlier on (+ low back), but it spazzed out on me around mile 10 or so. so then had to try and finish this damn thing without wrecking my hip. tried to start getting it back @ mile ~18 or so (worked with a good dude). kept it low 7's (still 2:5X project) until mile ~22. then my hip tweaked bad (leg buckled) and had to shut it down + jog it in.

lame!

felt fine in my endorphin's. which is pretty cool.

decent 10k (38.x)/half split(1:25). wanted to try and go for low 2:50's.

several hours later, hip def feeling it but i don't think it's going to be anything major.

not sure what the fu*k was up with my achilles.

two potentially scary issues, will take a few days off and hope they disappear.

other than that, feel beat up as expected for running 26.2 in a road race.







really sucks. it was hot/humid but it didn't bother me at all, which is cool. HR got pretty low for the 'safe mode' mileage (last 16 miles). had to stay below pain threshold.

thought about dropping out, but 7:XX was bearable so..

end of skills challenge was epic.

3 pt contest was great.

too bad i have to sleep now. hah.

I gotta roll with DSJ. Although Bridges is dope in his own right, Dennis just has bounce, flair and an arsenal of dunks. He's just gotta be smart and not hit the big stuff too early.

ya exactly.

starting soon!

REST #2!

felt kinda crappy today. achy from too much rest/sleep i imagine. also left knee painful a little after waking up, probably contracted my leg hard while sleeping or something. right low back achy early on, but got better throughout the day.

should feel good tomorrow though I imagine. should have more "easy" power than the last few races - due to the 2 days complete rest. hoping that gives me a big boost in holding some good pace for a much longer duration.

need to sleep early and wakeup very early (4 AM). race is at 6 AM!

some finishing clips from the 12k/5k last week. great finish (for me) on the first one. ~4:13 min/mi pace.

diet:
- ate alot! maybe too much..
- having my last meal right now (7 PM)

also took a 2 hour nap.

2 X Olympian Anthony Famiglietti runs a sub-4 minute mile with Bailey the dog on a wheel measured greenway course on 2/09/2019. The former record was 4:13.  This course measured just a bit longer than 5280 which is exactly a mile. It measured 5285 feet at the shortest possible route. Bailey took a longer route as she did not always use the tangents.  The wheel measurement of the course is in an additional video on this page. Several witnesses attended and filmed from several vantage points. Anthony is currently training to break sub-4 mile on the track and is in great shape. He has a personal best of 3:55 mile. The owners of Bailey the dog came into Anthony's gym in late January 2019 and said they had a fast dog and couldn't find anyone fast enough to keep up with her. They asked Anthony to test out how fast she really was. Bailey and Anthony likely would have run faster if she wasn't spooked by a drone mid run and had time to practice. This was Bailey and Anthony's first time meeting as well as their first run together. Anthony had also never run with a dog before.
