Monday, June 8 - WORKOUTS!
Good morning, TEAM LIT!
Busy so right to it for me...
Saturday: ~8 mile very technical trail run in roughly 1:30 time with 4 others.
Sunday: Freedom Run 5K, 20:20 (6:33 pace), 6th Master - Not very impressive numbers for me until I tell you that in a race of 1800 starters, I was the last (or at least among the last) starters in the race, I pushed the boy in the stroller, the stroller wheels were dead flat, and my first mile was something like 8:00 due to stop and go and dart for space to go from 1800 to 71 overall. Knew I would not get top 3 for Masters. Can't push stroller and do that in this race. I had been lined up by the front before the starting gun, and that would have surely turned my 20:20 into something more like 19:30, but the boy was having a bad day and needed to get out of the crowd of the front of the race and the fact that a large speaker was right there blaring volume. The boy had been and is still sick with what his sister had (103+ fever, etc), but he was rebounding so we figured the cool air of the morning, a temperature that was back to normal, and getting out of the house would be good for him. I won't say it was a mistake, but he was off and couldn't handle being around people. So immediately after crossing the finish line, instead of joining the after party (amongst the very best of any race), we sought out "choo choo's", police cars, fire trucks, and boats and city buses.
Monday: 3.5 mile tough, sluggish run early this morning.
Great day, friends!
