Memorial Day 10k

Ran the American Hero's Memorial Day 10k race with John & Steve and Marcy jockstraped.

I had a great race, but the time is not official yet and I'm too lazy to get my Garmin. So, for now the time is off the top of my head.

Used this as an LT test. New run LT is 190 and I'll update with details later.

Here are my 1 miles splits:

Note that I didn't stop my Forerunner until some time after I had stopped. My best guess is this was about 6 seconds after I finished.

  • 1h 01m 04s
  • 17.91 miles
  • 17.60 Mi/hr

Planned for a 2hr ride, but headed right into a thunderstorm. I turned around early and rode a bit in my neighborhood just to get 1 hour.

  • 29m 21s
  • 7.00 miles
  • 14.31 Mi/hr

Piled the bike in the Jeep and dropped the Jeep off for tires. Rode in to work. I underestimated this distance. I thought it was 2-3 miles. I guess the side roads I took really added to the distance.

  • 40m
  • 4.40 miles
  • 09m 05s /Mi

Had an appointment to get some new tires for the Jeep at 9:30. So, after I dropped Peyton off at school, I went for a run instead of going to work for 1 hour.

This run sucked. Looking at the numbers, it looks good, but this was the worse run I've had in a long time.

I intended to make this a high Z2 run, but after 2 miles, I was mid Z3 and couldn't slow down. My legs felt great, but I was otherwise drained. I was planning to go 50 min, but cut out one loop to go home. I think I need some sleep and to slow down a bit.

On the positive side of things, I did run with the Garmin footpod and my average cadence on this run is 86. However, I did take about 3 short walk breaks where my cadence was in the 50-60 range.

  • 1h 57m 55s
  • 31.65 miles
  • 16.10 Mi/hr

FG 42-16

Commute To Work
Well, at least I got one commute in this week. The wind was definately my ally. This ride was really split 13.77 mi, then short run, and 2.72 mi finish.

Commute Home
It didnt't really start too hard, but the last half of the ride I rode pretty hard with my HR pretty much > 175.

Partly to blame is the wind, and partly because I needed to be home to go pick Peyton up from school. But, the reality is that I was having so much fun, I just kept pushing.

Brick run. I parked my bike in the middle of the soccer fields, kicked off my shoes, and ran barefoot for 3 loops.

Received a bunch of Garmin toys yesterday; bike/run quick release kit, speed/cadence sensor, & footpod. I would have just ordered the quick release kit, but I had some mad money from Uncle Sam that I need to buy something useless with. The cadence sensor is going on the tri bike. I plan to start running some trail runs and will probably use the footpod to get somewhat accurate pacing info from. It also will give running cadence even when using the GPS. I think the quick release kit is only "ok". It's not going to save any time over the previous velcro strap, but it's real nice to have it locked into a bike mount. I'm going home early today to pick Peyton up from school, so will be working tonight.

  • 30m
  • 1500.00 yards
  • -----

Managed to get away for lunch (1:30), but had to keep it short.

2x200 WU
1x1000 TT (17:14, 1:43 /100 yd pace)
1x100 CD

To me 1:43 per 100 yd seems blazing fast, but it's equivalent to a 1:54 per 100 meter pace. Don't get me wrong, I'm still way proud of that pace, but 1:43/100yd just sounds soooo much faster. I'd prefer to do a 1000m TT, but I just can't get myself to swim indoors again.

I really feel for those single parents out there. I only have one kid and for only 2 days so far. I'm beat, the house is a mess, and we've eaten out for EVERY meal. Hopefully, I'll swim at lunch.
