Well I slept in til 7:00 a.m. 2 things: I don't usually blog past early morning, and something else too, it escapes me though. :) ahahahaaa!!! now that is pretty bad.
The run yesterday went pretty well. I started off slow slow slow, just calm. No hard breathing, as a matter of fact I don't think I breathed hard the whole run, so I wasn't going all out. Once I hit the halfway point I picked it up a bit I believe. I know my 2nd half time was 7 seconds quicker than the first half time, and the 2nd half has a 4-5 mile section of hills. I don't ever remember it being so hilly, but it sure is.
The people who zoomed by me in the first half got caught in the 2nd half. Since it was a group training run, I think we go just a tad bit faster than a regular one, but at the end I still had plenty of kick, and could have gone on. Not 10+ miles on, but further. Doing a 25 K in May makes me happy I am not doing a marathon. It is that crazy math. 15.53 is a long way to run, but adding 10+ miles is quite a bit. I'll be ready for the fall though.
Now starts a nice stretch for me. 8K race this weekend. Hope to P.R.... I should. 25K race the next weekend, and then solo training for the Diemer 5K. That 5K is a huge race for me. You know I want to break that 22:00 barrier. That sucker is going down!!!! It won't be in my name cause I am a ringer for the corporate challenge. (Ha Ha... just kidding on the ringer part) filling in is what I should say, under some other person's name. :)
Guess that is it. Kudos to those who ran 20 as part of the Riverbank preview run. The ones from our group started their 20 the same time I started my 15.53 run, and we finished the same time.
Those fast feet!!!!
White Sox another walk off. Blackhawks tie short-handed with 14?? 16?? seconds left, and win right after they killed off a 5 minute major. Good day to be a Chicago fan.
I am out!!
