Tuesday Kids had another field trip so I spent 8 hours outside in the 90 degree sun, lot of fun but I was pretty zonked
PM 5 miles with Melissa in 44:47 we were crawling and I wasn't complaining!
Wednesday PM 10.1 around Phillips, first 1.5 with Melissa then solo, 1:10:36
Thursday PM 6 miles on road with Uta in 39:27
Friday PM 3 miles with Melissa and Uta in the rain, just exhausted at the end of a long week and decided to take it easy, 22:12
Saturday PM 6 miles on road with Uta, 38:40
Sunday AM 2 plus warm up with Melissa, some strides, race Ribfest 5 mile, USATF-NE championship, 12th place, 25:55, humid. was 15:41 at 5k which is about equal to the race I ran a travs trail a few weeks back so a decent step in the right direction. The last 3k sucked, 10:05, but it had a long gradual uphill that caused everyone to slow, leaders ran around 9:25, and I was pretty done with the humidity. Not what I had hoped for looking at things as I started running a couple months ago but given how little I have done, really just some jogging around, I'll take it. 3 mile cool down with Melissa in 25mins tot. 11
Summary 42 miles, one race. My last day of school is Tuesday so I'm really hoping to get back in the game over the next couple of weeks. I feel pretty good and if I come out of the race ok I should be good for a jump up in miles. I'd love to be around 60 this week but even more I would love to start doing a little training and not just jogging.
This is the sweet Millennium Running grilling spatula I one for my age graded performance. I didn't own one and I do want one so that made this a pretty awesome prize. I have to hand it to John Mortimer it was a heck of nice event and there were a lot of really neat details.
