WDW Marathon Results

It's official. I'm done. And incredibly stiff and sore. There will be no more fast moving for me today. The race didn't quite go according to plan, but I felt pretty good running the entire time and definitely didn't blow up. I just slowed down towards the end, but I kept running. Definitely a different story from last year's Disney Marathon or Quebec City.

So here are the details. I know I ran more than the 26.2 miles (unfortunately not how much more since I accidentally turned my Garmin off for around 8 minutes), so the paces are a little pessimistic.

Final Time: 4:44:50 (10:52/mi)

5 mi: 54:30 (10:54/mi)
10 mi: 1:46:42 (10:40/mi)
13.1 mi: 2:18:29 (10:34/mi)
20 mi: 3:33:17 (10:40/mi)

At any rate, that is a solid PR by 26:13. One other thing of interesting note? My average heart rate was 173 bpm. That is the top of Zone 4 for me, but we can talk about that later. More details to follow!

I hope my next marathon doesn't go as planned and I get a HUGE PR :-) I'm just thinking there is NO WAY that that is the top of your Zone 4. How did you figure out your zones?

Well done, Leanna!!!
