Another Long Run Friday


Splat, Splat, Splat


Alarm goes off, I hear rain on the sky light, another long run on the treadmill!!!

So, I got the kids to school and myself to the Rec Center.

The FIRST plan called for 20 miles at PMP+(30-45 seconds).

I ran the first 6 at 9:50, the second 6 at 9:40, the third six at 9:30, and then I kept bumping it down for the last two. I ended up with an overall pace of 9:38.

As I was slowing it down when I finished, the man next to me said “Wow, does that say 81 laps? How far did you walk? I have never seen anything like that before. Why are you walking so far?”
I told him I was training for a race.
He asked “Are you going to win? Are you the best?”

They are calling for 3-5” of snow tonight. Guess it is going to be a trainer ride tomorrow. Bring on spring already!!!!

I had to do 10 on the TM yesterday, and I thought of you the entire time! I wish I was in the physical shape that you're in, though - 10 would have been a breeze to you!!

You're always better than someone! Keep it up, you'll do great at Tom King.

TJ said...

Wow. That sounds like torture.
Way to get it done.

Hey Michele,

Tom King this weekend. Looks like we'll be breaking out the rain gear.

Hope to see you at the race!

Yes, spring please.

I say anybody that can do 20 on a treadmill can do just about anything.

I'm with you on the rain running. I don't mind running in it, but hate starting out in it.
