Run Training

Tough day at the office.  I'm all jacked up from treadmill to the road for a hard race and struggled today.  Hard days make hard champions.

Nutrition Fuels Fitness 5k

After finding out Nevada City's Batwa Challenge got canceled, Slowrunner77 & I went over to Elk Grove for the Nutrition Fuels Fitness Race.  Slowrunner77 took 2nd in the 10k by a slight 3 seconds in 34:22 and I finished the 5k in 25:33.  I ended up running my fastest 5k since the comeback but walked at Mile 2 because I hadn't run 2 back-to-back sub-8:00 miles and got a little cautious.

Run Training

20:07 run in the snow on the Canal Ditch w/ Slowrunner77.  Hopped in the Prius and got to the gym in time for the Burn 60 Spinning/Strenght Training class then ran the fastest mile I could on the tread (8:13).  Earned a couple beers and sushi for supper.

*a pretty lady in the spinning class thought I was a trainer @ St. Mary's not a Librarian--pretty cool!

Gotta get back in the groove

Slacked off since the Davis Stampede 1/2 Marathon PR.   Ballooned back up to 220# and lost some footspeed -- we'll remedy that.
