Friday I did 70 minutes out the trail with a runner friend of mine. It was fun to talk with her again.
Saturday was SDO.
Sunday Buddy did not appear so I went out and did 45 minutes. Two bunnies, lots of birds and the same young deer that I have been seeing. She was over on the other side of the lake. DC and I did a short hike in the afternoon. I tried wearing my recycled running shoes for the hike and the rest of the afternoon but toe is feeling bruised.
One pot of wax beans planted and out on the balcony. I hope to do 2 more.
Today I’ll try a short run out the trail. Temp has dropped down to 60°F. It will feel good to be cooler today.
Happy runs, All!
I admire the way you have so many friends! You are a pretty consistent runner too.
I had a pretty good weekend of running. I did my nemesis race, Hospital Hill and didn't die. There were all sorts of dire predictions about a heatwave and then thunderstorms so I had pretty much scrapped my original goal of finally getting my race time under 2:10 (this race is so hot and hilly that it is way slower than any other 1/2 I've done). Fortunately, there ws a 30 minute delay so the thunderstorm was allowed to pass and it cooled off a little. I managed 2:05:35 which is my best time ever for this particular race.
I did train smart and hydrate like rice field.
In my race pictures I look like I am suffering greatly with a big smile at the end so I know I gave it quite a bit.
I think if I am willing to increase my mileage a little before the race next year,
I might even be able to get under 2:00
Sunday I did a very slow recovery walk/jog and then walked both dogs.
Excellent work on the race! All the weather stuff really adds to the mental stress.
Ahhhh! Planning next year's race already.
Congratulations on the PR! Nice work. Especially with the heat and hills.
3.2 this morning. RN is back to swimming a couple of times a week so we will run on the days she does not swim.
I did manage 12 on Saturday. Hauling up one hill I noticed two people walking and pushing bikes a bit ahead of me. I caught up to them and passed them -- one was pushing a bike with a completely flat back tire, the other had apparently stayed with his friend out of sympathy. Once I crested the hill I head them behind me -- the guy with the intact bike was riding slowly, Flat Guy was running and pushing his bike.
I bet that is the last time they go out for a ride without tools and the necessary bits to fix a tire. Hah. One thing runners do not need to worry about!
Great work on the 3.2.
Many times I have thought about the potential problems with bikes. It would be awful to be stranded 'way out someplace.
That's what I like about running. Not a lot of equipment required. No body likes to get passed but sometimes you just have to accept when you are beat.
