Another 10k in the books!
And, I unfortunately did it all by myself :/ Ann got sick this week and didn't feel up to running. But thankfully the hubby stepped up and drove me there and spectated for me! Yay.
I ran it in 1:06:57 according to the chip timing. The results were available last night! Which was awesome cause I'm really impatient! Everyone was wearing green and I liked starting ahead of all the guys. Although, that meant I got passed a lot! Starting at about 9:30min in! I'm so slow!
Brian caught me at mile one ish, informed me he had beaten me here. Ha.
I didn't run with my ipod and mostly ran by feel. I was pretty impressed I was able to keep up my pace. The course was really hilly, and steep. But I didn't walk a single step! Which was my real goal I guess. I thought at 3.1 that maybe I could PR cause it was about 31:xx and I was pretty excited. But mile 5-6 never felt so long!
Me crossing the finish line!
My one complaint was, I flew through the finish line and went to drop off my chip. I started walking and didn't see any post race grub. No bananas, bagels, cookies nada. I was bummed and hungry. For some of us this is a long run which does take over an hour! Hello!
Well we did get a free green beer cause a lass won overall but I don't like beer so I stole myself a nice cup of water. And stole the cup. Shh.
I made Brian stop at the Baskin Robbins on the way out of town cause we don't have those in Omaha. I'm not a food blogger, but I am for ice cream!
That's chocolate peanut butter on top of super fudge truffle. Which I now affectionately call, super fudge shuffle. Isn't that song in your head now? Come on Chicagoans! Bust a move!
I'm still really excited about my performance yesterday all by my self and I didn't walk! Yay! Yeah it's not a pr, but I'm not exactly trained for one either. I can't wait to do more 10Ks this season!
Today I was sore from the hills and running on the tm sounded awful. So I hopped in the pool and did 1400 yards (or 28 laps, I like it when I swim my age!). I was shooting for 30 when I was done with 25, but the hubby finished his work out early. Well maybe not early, it did take me almost 40 minutes to swim that much. (38:58 to be exact). I stopped to breathe at every 10 laps. Go me! I guess I do have another tri coming up! And Cancun!
I don't have my Garmie splits cause I'm having trouble getting my ant stick to be recognized by my computer. Does anyone else with the 405 have this trouble?
In other news, I didn't get my marathon week! Blast! Ann and I went to the gym about 9pm on Thursday (after I'd worked a 12hr) and the guy at the front desk told us Ann had been my guest too many times. We'd have to have her pay $15 to get in. She offered to pay it buy I said it was stupid to pay $15 just to run a measly 2 miles! I was hot. I asked the guy if they had sent out an email regarding the "new guest policy" (basically I can bring two guests a month as long as they're not the same person - which, I can say that no one else at the front desk must know cause Ann's gone to the gym with me every other week since January and no one's said a thing!) which came out in Nov. He said "no they're really bad about that". Come on LTF! Get with it! Grr.
