1. Amazed at how good I felt after the 1/2. I really didn't have any soreness to speak of. I always feel like that must mean I didn't push it hard enough. Took a couple days off but did a short easy run on Wednesday and it felt pretty good.
2. I've actually used my bike trainer (that I acquired in the spring from a great guy on BT that offered it free to the first person who contacted him. ) two times this week. I've not wanted to run in the cold dark morning, but getting on the trainer in the garage, where it's cool but not cold, and reading as ride my bike is kind of nice. I do need some ideas on workouts though. I need to work on finding some intervals or something. Ideas?
3. One of my goals for the year was to do a 5k in under 35 minutes this year. I've not done a 5k that was not at the end of tri this year. So I've printed out a short training plan for a 5k based on my 1/2 marathon time. It says that I should be able to do one in 33 minutes. Now I need
to follow through with the plan and pick one, possibly a turkey trot on Thanksgiving.
5. Pictures are up for the R'N'R 1/2. A couple of them actually turned out pretty good and I think I will be buying at least the 1st two here. I always feel like I need to have them. In my former life, :) ok still, I'm a scrapbooker, I just don't seem to have as much time for it. I keep saying I'm going to put together an album with all my bib's medals and pics. Some day...maybe I should get back to work on my boys albums first. Do you buy race pics?
