Didn't do much exercise today, but did get in my standard 2 to 3 mile lunch time walk, and will do some push ups, dips, sit ups and curls as is usual nighttime protocol (post China meetings tonight) I could jump on the TM out in the garage, but not a fan of it. (I really hate daylight savings time, the sun should stay out until at least 8 IMO)
Hoping the rain holds off so tomorrow I can go for a hike/run somewhere.
Interesting question, I'm not much of a racer, so had to look back in time...
I thought for sure I'd dominate my 3rd marathon in Long Beach (to best my 1st marathon time), I was actually shooting for BQ
, was in the best shape of my life, apparently I wasn't ready for that pace over the distance, crash and burned very hard.
Of course there was my 2nd attempt at the LA marathon (9th overall) figured I'd cruise in with any easy PR
I think I blew out my PF and the calfs were done, pulled it home, but major disappointment. Even worse, turned out my legs, calves and feet were in such pain, I was done running for quite sometime. Looking back on it I knew I shouldn't even have run it, I had just come off 3 marathons the previous 3 months and had never really recovered from those.
That feels like a lifetime ago...
It's been almost 11 years since running a marathon, my 10th never happened, but you never know what the future holds, just won't be one that I have already run, seems I'm not very good at 2nd attempts
