I was ok with my time averaging 8:52, wasn't my best time for the course and wasn't my worst.
After the race I went home and did my training run. 9 was on the schedule I figured I would do just the additional miles my feet had a mind of its own and I ended the run with 9.3 miles. Might as well do them when I feel good.
This morning I went to Westport for the 2nd race in the Westport Summer Series 3.1miles. After yesterday I really wasn't expecting much. I've done back to back races before and was fairly happy with my time. I think the 9.3 miles after the race yesterday made a difference this time. I average 9:00 mins per mile. This is one of my favorite course in this series and I usually do well averaging about 8:30 miles. I'm not disappointed though yesterday was worth it.
I am worried that I might have overdone it today, after the race I went to the Y to finish my training run, 8 was on the schedule for today I did 6.4 miles on the treadmill at 9:40 pace . Then I bike for 30 min for a total of 6.3 miles I then stumbled over to the weights. Tomorrow I have to do 14 miles I hope I have the strength. Note: I do feel good right now :)
