day 13 - teeeeennnn miles! 1:15:40 / 7:34 average. normal run, maybe a little wet, but i am much happier getting drenched by a rain shower than frozen by a snow shower. i heard it's turning to snow though. oh no. 

love mondays!

 

PM note: felt funny all day. and super tired. not feeling funny anymore...just feeling bad. aches and chills sort of bad. hopefully i can sleep it off. 3:30 tuesday morning workout tomorrow so i am going to bed now and hopefully this doesn't progress into anything worse. skipping abs tonight.  not a good time to be sick. i am going to fight it off with all i have.

day 15

10.2 / 1:17:47 / 7:37 average

started out slow but was able to get moving after about 3 miles. finished @ 6:39 pace for the last 15 min. of the run. slightly dehydrated after. both of my nalgenes were full (14 oz and 16 oz) and i downed them both pretty quick...and i am not one to chug water right after a run.  i just didn't feel like eating/drinking anything yesterday and i didn't realize how thirsty i was. haha. feeling good now. going with easy foods like bananas and dry toast...boring but safe.

day 16: 10 miles with 5 x 2:00 hills (6.5 - 7% incline) and 3 MP miles to finish off. 1:15:30 / 7:33 avg.

i am getting excited for the 10K this weekend. but it looks like it is going to be a bit snowy. this will make it more challenging, but will be a good "toughen up" race. any race done in poor conditions makes those perfect summer morning races feel like a breeze. ahh, summer...

? ? ? maybe more miles this evening after work ? ? ?

i slowed things down today...racing tomorrow. 1:22:05 / 8:03 average. feeling good, maybe a little tight but i will get in some good stretching to be ready for tomorrow.

i thought i had run a 44:50-something, but i must have had frozen eyes, because my official time came out to be 45:01. bummer!  average pace was 7:15, meaning i can't even count these as MP miles. ha! 

 

anyway, i had a fun time, and finally got to meet some fellow bloggers (Sasha, James, Mary Ann, Jeff). they all ran very well, as did Seth, who won the race. Mary Ann won for the females, and i am blown away at how fast she ran considering the conditions.

it was snowing fairly hard at about 9:30 when i started my warm-up, and there were no signs of clearing. i did a 2 mile warm-up @ 8:35 pace, came back nice and wet and snow-covered. but i felt warm and thought i was ready to race. the snow was still coming down hard when the race started, but it was tolerable. the entire course was snow-packed, but it was only a couple of inches, nothing deep. i felt like i went out fast the first mile, but my split was only a 6:50. so i was getting a pretty bad return for my effort. miles 1 through 3 i drafted behind gray beanie man 21:33 at the turn-around, so i was slowing down and even more off my pace. and the turn-around. oh, the dreaded turn-around...

i had warmed up quite nicely the first half of the race, and was feeling a little too hot so i was thinking of ditching my shell at the turn-around. but the second i rounded the cone, the fierce, arctic, breath-taking, pace-sucking wind hit me right in the face. this was going to be a long three miles to the finish. i was in fifth place at this point, and i didn't want to lose that. i already knew my time was going to be horrendous, so i just wanted to focus on keeping my position. i put my head down and just kept saying to myself "keep going, keep going". mile 4 was a 7:30, and it just got worse from there. i felt like i was working so hard running against the wind and on the slick snow, but i was getting nowhere. again, feeling like i am putting out so much effort and getting no return. so frustrating! 

last mile was a 7:09, so i was happy i "sped up" at least a little at the end. luckily there is still one more race in the series (15k), so there is a chance for redemption. and hopefully the weather will be a little nicer, although this is a winter series, so i shouldn't be complaining.

very short cool-down because i was already cool. should have done more. planning on a few tonight on the TM.
