Runs went well yesterday. 1st was 3 miles in 23:30, did 1.5 miles @ 7 min pace. 2nd was 5 miles in 41:07 w/ our group.
SRD today. Got some prep work for a fish fry we're having Saturday evening.
5 mile race tomorrow. Not sure how I'll fair. Heard the course is kinda tough. I'm gonna shoot for 7 min miles. We'll see. Not an 'A' race, not even a 'B' race.
What's really sad is when waking at 7am is "sleeping in". Later this afternoon I'll ride to the lake, do a little splish splash, work registration, then ride home. Tomorrow I'll work the transition area. See if these ladies can top 9 racks down that we had at the last race.
BBS--good luck racing tomorrow. Sometimes I think I enjoy those "not even on the radar" races because they don't matter and I can sit back and just enjoy racing.
Morning (just barely) BBS & 4bm. Where's everyone else?
Back to the sauna today after a "less humid" day yesterday where the dew point was "only" 74. I ran at the lake trail anyway last night. 90 degrees at 6:45pm. First mile very easy then 3 at 7:55-ish pace, then cooled it down for 0.5 or so to complete the loop. Sweat was coming out of every pore of my body when I sat down on the grass to stretch afterwards. Still a good run though.
Heat index at around 105 today, so I'll be riding to nowhere indoors. Another mini-brick workout, i.e., with a short 10:00 TM jog at the end.
Nothing. This week has now been flushed down the toilet. Mood is darker than a black board with no chalk.
BBS - good luck with the race. Do they have beer at the finish line?
Hawk - nice weather your having there...
4boysmom - have fun at the races. Placing any bets?
Hi all, we made it to Ohio pretty smoothly. I got in a 4.6 sweaty miles this morning beforehand.
bbs - nice double, knock out that 5 this weekend!
4boys - hope you had a fun time
Hawk - seems like you are all better, good to see you out there
RA - don't let it get you down, weather for your Wed/Thus was rough but you got it done
kfuller - nice one
zrun--where in Ohio are you?
Now, how the heck did THAT happen?! Before heading to the race venue I checked radar. Just had a bad feeling, like a pop up thunderstorm was in order. Nope. Nuthin' on radar. I headed out and ***Boom*** thunderstorm. Barely made it to the venue before the sky opened up. Then the sun came out... Worked registration until it closed. Heading home and wouldn't you know--ANOTHER pop up! How does that happen?!
