Two weeks to this and zero rides! Guess I'd better get busy! It's the Chequamegon Fat Tire race in Hayward Wi. It used to be an annual event back in the spandex years. It's 16 miles of hills with 2,499 of your closest friends!
Sad sad day. We lost are little girl, Angel today. It was sudden and totally unexpected. I'm not sure if this makes it easier or harder. All I know is that I miss her so. For thirteen years she listened to all of my problems and never once complained. She was my sweat heart!
Had a crappy hot and humid run tonight. Ran 8 last night at a 9:30 pace and negative split the entire run! Tonight 10:00 pace for all five and felt crappy. Only good thing was I had a pool date with this little sweetie when I got done.
In an effort to pick up some speed I have decided to have a one mile time trial once a week. I also do some short sprints on the same night. Last night my mile was 8:10, this week 8:15. However this week it was so so hot and humid! So the speedy turtle will keep trying. On to The Twin Cities!
It was a hot and humid humid humid day for a run. This race is very poorly supported and could have used twice as many water stops. The stops they did have were poorly staffed and we often stood and waited for water energy drink. Not sure I would do this race again for that reason. I wished I would have wore my water belt. On to The Twin City Marathon!
It was weird to run hard! Haven't run a short race in forever. It was a perfect day to run. My time was slower than last year but I think the distance training has slowed me down for the short run. It's a hilly 5k and I finished in 27:20
