My week went well, except of course my tempo run!!! not once did go under a 10 min pace closet was 10:03. My tempo should have been out of the eight miles 5 at 9:01 by myself this is very difficult. I guess I could use the Norwalk 7 miler as my tempo run I believe I average 9:05 pace and at least 3 to 4 miles 8 -8:30 pace. My final time was 1:03:15 I may have drank too much fluids, as this was the first time I ever felt my stomach swishing around. When I ran a few hours later I was fine. I don't think this is an easy course. Although there was no humidity, it was pretty hot Saturday morning. I will not give up on this though so, onward I move . Somehow I will be able to do a tempo run on my own like I use to.
I was a volunteer at the 7 miler handing out bibs before the race. This time the first thing I did was put my bib on. Then with about 10 mins to go Monica gave me the OK to leave. I used the rest room then tried to do a bit of a warm, but I'm afraid it was too late for that.
I'm worried about my Sunday long runs,I got out early today so that was good. I may be doing too much during the week. I was feeling better than last week. Today I only did 16 miles because I ran out of time. I was ask to join Accelerade.com a few weeks ago and with that I received a 30 day supply of accelerade. When I came home from the race on Saturday they were delivered. I'm glad to be trying this product and of course I will report on it on there site and mine.
