Well back to logging my workouts. I think this will be the first week in the last four weeks that I go over 20 miles running for the week. With my first 1/2 marathon quickly approaching I need to get back to taking long runs and build my base back up. I am going to run the Philadelphia Distance Run on September 16th. I have completed this distance a month or two ago (I just checked and it was 6/24) but have only one run over 10 miles since that run. But like I said I am back this week.
Monday - I ran 5.25 miles at about a 10 minute pace, this was the day after my race. Just wanted to get some recovery miles.
Tuesday - I ran 3.75 miles at about 9:30 pace, I did stop for about 2 minutes to pet a St. Bernard.
Wednesday - I went to my first meeting with Team Triumph. I may be wrong but I think this is the first time I am mentioning TT. They are a local Triathlon Team that I actually joined the week of my Duathlon back in May. I have "lurked" on their message board but I have not made any group workouts or meeting until last night. They were a very nice group of people and I hope to become more involved with them next season. Because ultimately Tri's are the direction I am heading. I will still do plenty of running events but I want to be a Triathlete someday.
Thursday - I went to my normal Thursday night race. No real goal time tonight just doing it as a workout. I managed a 29:03 but was about 31 out of 34 (something like that). There were a whole lot of High School X-County runners there tonight. I did get 2nd in my age group (you don't have to ask) and my prize was a 32oz Gatorade. Official results are now posted.
So here is the bad news. I had made my big announcement a week or so ago that I was going to do my first Tri this Sunday. Well ,as I often do, I forgot that Kim told me that we have a family function way up in North Jersey that day. So I will have to look for another one. I WILL DO A SPRINT TRI THIS SEASON. I looked and there are still a few to choice from and even if I have to go to Delaware there are a few.
That is all for now.
