Just jogged a mile around the block. Heading out to the SLTC 15k now. 30 mph winds - and not a tailwind!
I'm trying to find something positive to say - not happy with my racing intensity today.
Ran the first 4 miles in 5:41, 5:41, 5:39, 5:39.
Hit the turnaround and into a hurricane...
Mile five in 5:48. Six in something like 6:18. Then Kevin caught me and I de-wimpified for a few minutes and ran mile 7 in 5:58 while drafting off of Kevin. Right hamstring started hurting and I ran mile eight in 6:02. Not sure what I ran after that as I lost interest in my splits. Kevin put about 30 seconds on me in the last mile.
Walter Brown ran a good race and beat me for the masters win by about a minute.
I thought of something positive - It was a good workout that I will get a lot out of if my hamstring doesn't tighten up more.
Jake ran something like 48 minutes and Fritz ran around 50 flat - both really good times in today's conditions. Pretty inspirational.
Was going to do a 4 mile cool down with Jake, Andrea, Fritz and Kevin but I turned around early because my hammy was hurting.
PM: Went to the New Balance store and cashed in my gift cards from thr winter series this afternoon. Since all NB shoes are numbers an I don't have tha kind of brain that easily remembers numbers I'll just say that they are pretty cool - weigh just 9 oz. and really cushy. I like cushy.
Went to the gym and ran 2.25 on the treadmill in my new New Balances and soaked in the hot tub.
