I ran 6.5 miles on Sunday morning. 9:45 average pace. Not bad.

Gardening is interfering with my running (and riding) of late. Somehow I ended up the head of our new little community garden at my church, and we've ended up working mainly in the very early morning. So today, instead of my planned 7 miles, I did a 5k tempo run (in 26:45, not bad for running a hilly route alone) and then unloaded a pick-up truck load of topsoil.

Tomorrow, I'll get in a decently long run, no matter what. Even if it means getting up at 4 am, it's going to happen.

Yesterday = 4 miles in 40 minutes

Today = 1 tandem ride in God only knows how many minutes

Well, I did manage to run to the Y this morning (at 4:45 am!!). On the way back I had to take a couple of walking breaks on the uphills. It feels good to have cooler weather to run in!!

I did my usual 1.75 this am. I have felt good gradually moving my milegage up in increments. Running at the track also allows me to do more self analysis (on my running techniques) as I run, so that is good. The best thing that happened today was that I was able to keep my heart rate in check throughout the whole run . I have never been able to do that yet. I went in with the idea of going slow from the beginning because I tend to go to fast.

My next challenge is to start slow but somehow speed up the my second mile. That second mile just seems to drap on. I am struggling with ways to keep my mind occupied during the "middle" run.

Thanks for the posts guys!

The race went really well!

I had a good solid swim, and then the bike was quite hilly. I broke a spoke and stopped to mess with it, and we had a mandatory dismount to walk around some spilled oil in the road. The run was brutally hot, and there was a nice hill that we ran twice. I really wanted to be under 6, but I would have had to have had an incredible last 5K, and I just had an ok last 5K. I still PR--ed the distance by 21 minutes, so I was really happy with the race!

Thanks for the support!

We are on vacation in Boulder, CO, and I went on a "recovery hike" yesterday! I hope to be able to do some trail running by later in the week!

I called the pool to find out when I can aquarun there.

7am tomorrow will be my first go at it.

In place of a 9 mile run, coach says I need to aquarun 60-90 minutes.

Totally dreading it. Currently trying to figure out how I can mount my MP3 player to the top of my swim cap so that I don't go entirely insane.

KACIE - Congrats on a great event and the new PR!!

Kacie-Congrats on your Tri. At least you were able to do a PR. Nothing wrong with that! Enjoy the cool mountains of Colorado.
