August 12th 2010

Miles logged 6.5
Ran a 5k race last night at 6pm so I was certainly not well rested.  In fact I ran the 5k over a minute faster than the week before and had a gag reflex 25 mins in and had to stop to dry heave, not fun at all.  I had a couple wines and got to sleep around 11pm, too tired to make it out at dawn so I didn't hit it until 9am.  The temps have been in the 90's but this morning it was only in the 80's however it was so humid it didn't matter at all.  The first part of the run my legs were like logs they didn't loosen up until mile 3. Mile one I ran at 12:25 and I thought I was standing still.  I felt so sluggish I was happy with that time. Mile two was 12:09 I felt a little better.  Mile 3 and 4 have some inclines a hill I did 12:30 each,  mile five is run past Subway headquarters and I love that stretch so I kicked it up a litte 11:50 the fell back into the 12:30 pace for the end.   I took 8 o of water which I oly drank half and 1 GU a chocolate.  I normally don't do chocolate but this one gave me a little kick I liked.  I am pretty concerned that I haven't run a 10 mile run in 2 weeks and running 7 miles seems to be all I have been able to do in this heat.   Pre-run feul bagel with peanut butter and a gatorade.

The first posting

I decided to start a blog.  I'm not really sure what blogs are besides the rambles of self absorbed indivuals who feel the need to share what they feel are important details and ponderings of their very unimportant and mostly insignificant lives. (Oh and if you have a blog I am not talking about you, you are very important.)  Why am I joining in this practice?   Well it's not that I care to share anything Earth shattering, I already have a pretty good sense that my opinion doens't matter much and I feel no need to rant about the driver that cuts me off or the injustices in humanity.  I just want to keep track of my fitness training.  It's purely self indulgent.  I ran 10 miles yesterday in 90 degree weather and I thought it was the the hardest thing I'd done in a while but I recovered nicely, I'm not sore and I regained the 2 pounds I lost in water and  I was in the gym at 8am this morning.  I'd  want to keep track of what I'm doing so if something goes wrong (or right) I know what lead up to it.  If you're reading this I'm a terrible speller and I am a comma splicer.  I like grammar and all but I'd rather not have anything corrected unless of course I say something so wrong it's funny.  Humor rules.
