On Saturday I did the 30th Norwalk Summer Series 11 miler wasn't my best time for the race but it sure was a gorgeous day for running. This course is very hilly. I wished I'd done better but I'm happy with it, I did better than last year by about 3 minutes . Previous years I've done between 1:41 and 1:43 my best time for the course was 1:37 in 2003.
Later at 7:00pm I did a new 5k The Southwest Cafe Sunset 5K out and back. the out was tough and very hilly the back was a breeze again not my best 5k but after the 11 miler I couldn't be happier. Any way it was a chance for me to win 2 round trip tickets to Mexico!!!
This morning I attempted my long run again it was great. I was going for 18 miler I only complete 16. Lets just say the last 2 miles was big struggle, all my fault of course. Running two races in one day the day before your long run, bad idea. I just hope to get one really good one in before the marathons!!
